It is not unlawful for Defence to sign a contract with an entity in a tax haven, and they can fill in the forms and they can still be awarded the contract. But I don't think it's acceptable for most Australians, who want companies to contribute to our social structure, to our defence and so forth. What are you doing specifically in relation to preventing us encouraging contracts with entities in tax havens?
