This advice sets out the AEC's conclusion in relation to the matters described below.
Whether the rules of electoral disclosure were adhered to by an organisation called 'Alcoa Allsites Operators'.
Mr Don Randall MP (Member for Canning) raised concerns with Alcoa Allsites Operations in his adjournment speech on 25 June 2009. Mr Randall forwarded these matters to the AEC on 2 July 2009.
Div 4 of Part XX of the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918:
The AEC originally attempted to obtain a disclosure return from "Alcoa Allsite Operations" when it became aware of its donations in October 2008. Contact was not successfully made at that time nor was a return separately lodged.
Further enquires established that Mr Simon Price was the Secretary of 'Alcoa Allsites Operators', the organisation that made the donation.
Mr Price lodged a donor return for 'Alcoa Allsites Operators' after contact was made.
The AEC is now satisfied that all disclosure obligations have been fulfilled by 'Alcoa Allsites Operators'.
