Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation; Order for the Production of Documents
That there be laid on the table, by the Minister representing the Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, by no later than 10 am on 8 October 2020, the following documents:
(a) a letter from Dr Larry Marshall, Chief Executive of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation to the former Minister for Industry, Innovation and Science, former Senator Sinodinos, dated 9 August 2017; and
(b) the attachment to that letter titled 'Response to issues raised with references at the 26 July 2017 briefing' in full and without any redactions.
Labor oppose this motion as it is not necessary. The unredacted document in question is available publicly, via a simple Google search. Labor take this opportunity to again note our ongoing support for the CSIRO.
