Letter to Chairman - Inquiry into the Life Insurance Industry

Phillip Sweeney made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Securities and Investments Commission

The request was successful.

From: Phillip Sweeney

Delivered

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

In a media report in August 2016 the following statement was made concerning Senator Williams:

“Williams, whose re-election to the upper house was this week confirmed, told Fairfax Media that he would relaunch the Senate inquiry into life insurance that was announced before the election – but would broaden it to look at life insurance deals in super and the role of trustees.”

This statement prompted a letter dated 22 August 2016 to be sent to the Chairman of ASIC with the title "Senate Inquiry - New Terms of Reference".

The Executive Summary of this letter commenced:

- The Parliament of South Australia has confirmed the widows’ entitlement to a death benefit under the terms of one of Australia’s oldest superannuation schemes;
- Two Members of Parliament of South Australia executed one of the Deeds providing pensions to widows along with a mentor to Mr Rupert Murdoch;

I now seek a copy of this letter to ensure that this letter has not been lost or misfiled by ASIC.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
