Dear Australian Prudential Regulation Authority,

The document of documents the applicant seeks is any correspondence
from Helen Rowell of APRA or any other APRA Officer to the
Senate Economics Reference Committee or members of the committee or
the committee secretary where concern has been expressed that a
Deed of Variation dated 20 November 1974 did no validly amend the
terms of an occupational pension scheme established on the 23
December 1913 in the State of South Australia that has been known
by several names including The Provident Fund, the Elders IXL
Superannuation Fund and more recently as the AusBev Superannuation

This Deed of Variation added Regulation 30A that provides an "äutomatic" survivorship pension for widows of qualifying male members of the fund.

Purported instruments associated with this Fund bear the signatures
of John Dorman Elliott and Ken Jarrett who were the subject of
three major investigations by the former National Crime Authority
(NCA). Mr Jarrett served a term of imprisonment for dishonest

The search period is from 1 September 2015

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
