Senator WHISH-WILSON (Tasmania) (17:55): In terms of the funding model and the levying formula, the AFCA consultation paper includes, among other things, the following as likely principles for the funding model:

The model will provide a fair allocation of annual membership levies to members according to their size, incorporates incentives to resolve disputes early and, as appropriate, reflects attributes of the user-pays approach;

The model will seek to minimise direct sectoral or cross-subsidisation to the extent practicable …

Will the government commit to those principles?
