Dear FOI,

Thank you for your email. We offered references to assist your searches.

The Australian Senate had a continuing order which required departments and agencies to provide to the Senate a list of indexed lists of files created by them. The Senate advised us that the file number and title we referred to was created by AGDs.

The Office of Parliamentary Council identified 29 documents related to ‘a file with number 12/5946 relating to the HOSM Amendment Regulation: Iraq clasp’. The office advised they included your department’s related documents. We requested administrative access to information to inform FOI requests. Your department was unable to assist ‘The Department has taken reasonable steps to provide access to the information requested on an administrative basis, and we now consider your request to be finalised.'

Please let me know if you need further information. Thank you for your time.

Trav S
