Question Without Notice No. 586 asked in the Legislative Council on 15 August 2018 by Hon Simon O’Brien

Parliament: 40 Session: 1
Answered on

      586. Hon SIMON O'BRIEN to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:
I refer to the Intergovernmental Agreement on Identity Matching Services of 5 October 2017, clause 5.5 of which states —
      The private sector will not be given access to the other Face Matching Services or the Identity Data Sharing Service.
      (1) Will private companies be able to use the identification systems contemplated in the agreement to establish the identity of, for example, the owners or drivers of vehicles?
(2) Will any local government be able to access the identity matching systems?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
As obtaining the information is not possible in the time required, I ask Hon Simon O'Brien to place the question on notice; however, I will give an undertaking to see whether I can get the member an answer in the next couple of sitting days. If I cannot, I will ask the member to place it on notice.
