Foreign Investment Review Board

Mr Fletcher asked the Treasurer, in Writing, on 30 October 2012:

Further to his answer to question in writing No. 1137 (House Hansard, 9 October 2012, page P141), why is he unable to provide an update on the specific investment information he provided in 2010 (see question in writing No. 1314, House Hansard, 11 May 2010, page 3185).

Mr Swan: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Government is unable to provide the data requested because it is too resource intensive to produce. It would divert staff away from their main role of analysing foreign investment proposals.
