Submissions classified by the author as 'Confidential' have not been published on the website and will not be made available to the public.

Note that general disclaimers in covering emails have not been interpreted as a specific request or taken as sufficient reason for submissions to be treated confidentially.


To ensure that the privacy of third parties (including family members) is protected, and that the Commonwealth complies with its own legal obligations, some submissions have been published with the submitter's first name only and/or with third party details removed. Private contact details (eg, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses) contained in submissions have also been removed. There may be minor formatting changes as a result.
