My understanding on advice is that the Economics References Committee report was released in December 2015. This legislation had already been introduced into the parliament by that stage. Senator Dastyari, I note in your second reading contribution some concern about the time taken to bring this legislation forward. I am sure you would not have wanted to see a further delay to it in that regard. Of course, as with all Senate inquiries, the government will give appropriate consideration to all of the recommendations made and will officially respond in due course.
