ISPs spying on Australians: Government document heavily censored "The federal government has censored approximately 90 per cent of a secret document outlining its controversial plans to snoop on Australians' web surfing, obtained under freedom of information (FoI) laws, out of fear the document could cause 'premature unnecessary debate'.

"All parties to the consultations have been sworn to secrecy."
