09 Apr 10 Preamble - Friday, 9 April 2010This week saw Members' concerns with regard to the ATO Change program being raised in a letter to the Treasurer, the Hon Wayne Swan MP. The letter outlined the significant concerns with the Change Program, but acknowledged that the ATO has conducted itself in good faith with open consultation. Whilst the ATO has accepted that there are problems and is working to rectify them, Members need results. As I mentioned last week, the Prime Minister was asked about the issue on radio recently and he deferred to the Treasurer, so our letter also serves to assist the Treasurer (and Assistant Treasurer) in addressing the issues. The Prime Minister’s office was also copied into the letter.
Please see below for details of other activities this week.
