(ii) to (xiv) and (b) The Department does not have the information sought in a readily available form. The task of compiling all the information sought is a major task, the undertaking of which would unreasonably and substantially divert the resources of the Department from its other operations. Moreover, the information requested relates to the business affairs of the organisation and its provision as a response to the question would be likely to damage the commercial interests of individuals or the organization, or prejudice relations between the Commonwealth and the States. Accordingly, answers to each of the individual questions relating to each of the 64 Super Clinics is not provided.
