Senator JACINTA COLLINS (Parliamentary Secretary for School Education and Workplace Relations) (11:51 AM) —I suppose in part the answer I give now relates to my earlier comments. The answer is essentially, yes, a wider variety of agencies—because it allows that information now to be communicated directly. So, rather than going through the AFP, the communication can now occur directly to the ATO, which would not have been the case. But the answer is also, no, it cannot be communicated to anybody. I can repeat the criteria that would be involved in how information could be communicated and why it would not just be anybody. If you want me to, I can go back and elaborate on those aspects again.
