I wrote to Michael Danby (MHR for Melbourne Ports) to find what his views on the filter were.

Dear Sir,

Please find attached my letter to Senator Stephen Conroy, Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital
Economy, expressing my serious concerns about the proposed mandatory Internet filtering initiative.

As a long time Labor supporter I am dismayed that this government would propose that Australia join such repressive
regimes as China, North Korea, Burma and Iran in filtering the Internet. If this proposal is implemented, what will
stop future governments blocking free speech in this country?

Can you please advise what representations you are making concerning this matter.

Yours sincerely,

Paul Shipley
