The controversial proposed Telecommunications Retention of Data Traffic Bill is to be the subject of an information forum to be held by the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform. The bill calls for telcos and ISPs to log and monitor phone calls, text messages, faxes, emails and internet over a four-year period. An information notice from the department said that for ‘logistical purposes’ it is necessary to limit participation to two representatives from interested organisations.
