Would the govt have to pass any new legislation to enable these agencies to trawl through and cross-reference financial data to find the potential
My thinking is that the day/date a bill is passed in parliament allowing them to do this, they could do so, but wouldn't legally apply
For example, the law requiring permission to protest within a mile of parliament was passed, but as the protester
had set up his protest PRIOR to the bill being passed, could not be removed through
retrospective application of the new law
Therefore I could switch the account a giro was paid into the day before the bill was passed, so the authorities would only have the legal ability to
search that particular recieving account, but not retrospectively search the account previously used.
