The motion represents an unreasonable diversion of the AAT's resources. The AAT does not record information in its case management system that would enable it to easily identify cases falling within the scope of the motion. The AAT would need to individually review all decisions made by the tribunal during that period, from 1 July 2015 to 27 November 2019, where the tribunal set aside a debt decision made by Centrelink. The AAT has previously advised, in response to a question on notice dated 3 March 2020, listed as LCC-AE20-59, that a request for a more limited subset was 'an unreasonable diversion of resources'.
