Dreyfus told the House of Representatives on Monday that Labor had agreed to pass the bill if it and the amendments suggested by the government be immediately referred to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security and that the new laws conformed to the recommendations of the committee by early 2019.
The encryption law, known as the Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018, was passed on 6 December 2018.
A review was instituted by the PJCIS as soon as bill was passed, with a reporting date of 3 April. It was expected to provide some solace to the technology industry.
In October, Dr Renwick said he was extending the date for submissions to his review until 1 November. At the time he made this announcement, just 15 submissions had been received.
Dreyfus said: "On behalf of the government, Senator Mathias Cormann agreed to those conditions. As recorded in Hansard, Senator Cormann also said that the government supported, in principle, all amendments that were consistent with the Joint Intelligence and Security committee's recommendations.
"But here we are, a year later, in the final sitting fortnight of 2019, and it remains the case that Senator Cormann and the government have not honoured the commitment that Senator Cormann made.
"It remains the case that the Morrison Government continues to ignore the bipartisan recommendations made by the intelligence committee, continues to ignore the calls for reform of the now enacted legislation from industry and continues to ignore the very direct commitment that it made."
Dreyfus also pointed out that the government had made no effort to ensure that encryption law was compliant with the US Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data Act or CLOUD Act, which allows the US to seek access to data stored by American firms in any foreign domain.
Additionally, US allies also benefit. "Under the US CLOUD Act, it is possible for Australia to enter into a bilateral agreement with the United States to allow Australian agencies to request the data of non-US persons, like text messages sent by or to a terrorist subject, from American technology companies directly," Dreyfus pointed out.
"This new regime, if Australia is able to enter into a bilateral agreement with the United States, would give Australian agencies much faster access than under the existing regime of making such requests via the US Department of Justice under mutual legal assistance arrangements."
Former Labor digital affairs spokesman Ed Husic added his voice to Dreyfus' concerns, saying: "There were 15,000 submissions made by people in Australia's tech sector about the flaws in this bill. This government refused to take those submissions on board, refused to make a lot of those submissions public and refused to listen to what was said.
"On top of that, they then tried to shut down the committee when it was considering this bill. They tried to shut down consultation on, and consideration and criticism of, this bill back at the tail end of last year—this time 12 months ago. That is what they did.
"And, in their inability to manage the legislative program, they failed to bring their own legislation to this place to have it properly discussed in a timely way and to ensure that, when it got to the other place, the amendments could be considered."
