On pre-fill and late lodgers

"Went to the Tax Agents Portal to download 2012 & 2013 Pre filling report for a very ill client. The 2013 report was light on detail – there was no private health details, managed fund information etc.
The last item on the report states '2012 – 2013 ATO Held Information' with the note that the client has an outstanding return. Does this mean that the ATO is withholding data because of the prior year non lodgment? I hope not. No one at the 137286 number can give an assurance either way. If the data is being withheld , then yet again , the ATO need reminding that agents work at the coalface in the real world. Am I alone in my musings?"
