Submission to: Senate Community Affairs References Committee We do not support the continuation of the Centrelink automated debt collection process (robodebt). We remain concerned that debts claimed are inaccurate and people who may be experiencing vulnerability are paying debts they do not owe. Centrelink must be sure that a debt is owed before it commences any debt collection process and has the onus of proof. The debt collection process must be designed to be fair and take extra care in all circumstances as it is likely that the person receiving Centrelink is in financial difficulty, disadvantaged or vulnerable.
Submission to: ASIC We support ASIC using its product intervention power to prohibit short term lending models (the Cigno model). The short term lending model currently being used by Cigno causes significant harm to people and we urge ASIC to intervene urgently.
