Phillip Sweeney

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

Superannuation funds or schemes that are not established by statute are established as "trusts".

The general laws of trusts in Australia are very similar to those in the United Kington as well as are the laws of powers {eg "Thomas on Powers" by Geriant Thomas}.

However statutory laws related to superannuation trusts are different.

A popular Australia Authority is "Equity and Trusts in Australia".

The document I seek is a copy of the title page of any edition of "Equity and Trusts in Australia" by Gino Dal Pont {Lawbooks Co} as of 14 August 2020 that would confirm whether ASIC has possession of such popular Australian Authority as well as which edition or editions ASIC has in its possession. There have been seven editions of "Equity and Trusts in Australia".

IMPORTANT: I am not seeking a copy of the whole book which is a publically available document. I am only seeking a copy of the title page.

Title pages by themselves are not a publically available document.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

Fleur Forsyth, Australian Securities and Investments Commission
