Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee; Report
I rise to take note of the Finance and Public Administration Legislation Committee's report on the Data Availability and Transparency Bill 2020. I want to associate myself with the remarks of Senator Ciccone and Senator Sheldon made about the previous report. It is a strongly worded dissenting report from the Labor senators. I would encourage everybody on the other side to read it and have a careful think about what approach this government is going to take on temporary migration. If used properly, data sharing and data matching can of course create rich datasets that can be used to deliver government services better.
