Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (18:24): In an Aboriginal community where there is no Centrelink office or there's only an agent, if somebody goes to the agent, is that classed as the date of lodgement or is it when the department gets that form? These are real-life examples of where Aboriginal people have not got their documentation. What then counts as the lodgement date? Is it when they first go to the agent or is it actually when the process gets to the department?
