Mr Murphy asked the Treasurer, upon notice, on 12 February 2003:

With regard to my question No. 43, which first appeared on the Notice Paper on 13 February 2002, did he have any discussion of that question with the Commissioner for Taxation; if so, on what dates and what was Mr Carmody's advice to him.


Mr Costello (Treasurer) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

My answer to question No. 43 was based on information provided by the Australian Taxation Office. My office routinely discusses and seeks responses from all portfolio agencies to questions on notice from Members of Parliament. It is not the practice of Governments to disclose advice received from portfolio agencies.
