My question is to the Minister for Defence. I'm sure the minister is aware that there are a number of companies under her portfolio who appear not to be paying tax. I'll give an example from tax transparency data. BAE Systems Australia Holdings Limited, over the four years of tax transparency data, had an income of $3.9 billion and paid zero dollars in tax. What assessments, if any, has your department made of the tax practices of large Defence contractors, who appear to be experts in minimising their tax payments here in Australia?
