I thank Senator Patrick for that question. Normally, I would have thought, that question would have gone to the representative of the Treasurer in this house. However, I am very proud of this government's record in getting multinationals to pay their fair share of tax. We are global leaders in the international fight against corporate and multinational tax avoidance. In fact, Senator Patrick might be interested to know that since 1 July 2016 the ATO has raised about $13.5 billion in tax liabilities alleged against large public corporations and multinationals. Of that amount of money, $8.6 billion in tax liabilities is from multinationals.
