DHS, the estranged megadepartment for which has suffered a series of setbacks in the last year, has once again made headlines for all the wrong reasons recently when private information about a welfare recipient's financial affairs was released by the department in an attempt to counter the claims made about the debt recovery process used by DHS.The release of this information in this context is deemed to be legally debatable by welfare advocates. When George Brandis was questioned about Centrelink's activities on the Q&A program he responded that people should just contact Centrelink, which caused the audience to break out laughing as the current wait times and contact problems surrounding resolving debts issued by the Centrelink automated debt recovery system as seen by the public as being a farce.

It appears (from posts over there) that initial contact has been made, and this is one of many possibilities being considered.

I've just wandered back here today, and rediscovered that I made an account here two years back when SN had that big server-burp moment. So I'm ready to go if this is the direction the community decides to drift in... :)
