The request was successful.

Phillip Sweeney

Dear Department of the Treasury,

The ASIC Chairman, James Shipton, and Deputy Chairman, Daniel Crennan, are required to make 6-monthly written disclosures of their personal business interests, both direct and indirect, to the Responsible Minister as required by Section 123 of the ASIC Act 2001 and related ministerial instructions.

The documents I seek are copies of:

(i) the written disclosures of James Shipton to the Responsible Minister for the period 1 February 2018 to the present; and
(ii) the written disclosures of Daniel Creenan to the Responsible Minister for the period 16 July 2018 to the present.

The covering letters dated 12 October 2018, 1 October 2019 and 13 October 2020 for the last three ASIC annual reports have been addressed to the Treasurer, the Hon Josh Frydenberg MP.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

Dear Department of the Treasury,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Department of the Treasury's handling of my FOI request 'Disclosure obligations of James Shipton and Daniel Crennan'.

The Treasury has previously provided me with copies of the six-monthly disclosures of Greg Medcraft when he was an ASIC Commissioner and then ASIC Chairman.

If the Treasury was able to locate the six-monthly disclosures of Greg Medcraft then it should be able to locate the disclosures of James Shipton and Daniel Crennan.

Please check the FOI Disclosure Log

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/d...

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
