I move:

That the Senate—

(a) notes that it is in the public interest to release the total amount of revenue raised from the Minerals Resource Rent Tax in order to provide confidence as to how the tax is playing out and the precise ways the revenue is collected; and

(b) orders the Commissioner of Taxation to provide to the Economics References Committee, by no later than 15 February 2013, details of the revenue collected from the Minerals Resource Rent Tax by the Australian Taxation Office since 1 July 2012, noting That the disclosure pertains to companies and does not breach the confidentiality of natural persons.

Notice of motion altered on 5 February 2013 pursuant to standing order 77.

Question agreed to.
