Far be it from me to point out the glaringly obvious, but I will anyway.

The good people of Aus. have paid $365M to collect this data, why are they being asked to pay for it again? Even the excuse that it takes time and effort to compile the data is nonsense as public servants are paid by the taxpayer to work on their behalf. Fulfilment of FOI requests is part of their job.

It is also entirely unnecessary, were the data committed to a proper electronic archive, it could be made available freely online, with no need for public servant intervention which does indeed cost hundreds of $’s, but needn’t.

This is negligent, incompetent and obstructive behaviour left wing governments consider acceptable because, of course, the data belongs to them personally.
