‘the following concerning the television advertising campaign for the Australian Government’s Household Assistance Package launched in mid-May 2012 to promote the availability of payments to families to coincide with the introduction of the carbon tax policy: All scripts forwarded to the Department for approval for use in production of the advertisements, including versions that were not approved to continue in production; and Copies, provided on DVD, of different versions of television advertisements submitted to the Department for approval, including the versions that were rejected for final editing or release for use in the television campaign.

FOI decision:

  • Document nos. 1 to 13 are released in full.

Note: Document no. 13 (the DVD of different versions of the TV advertisements) is not published. Publication of the DVD content would be unreasonable, as they are ‘offline’ versions of the advertisements which reflect the early stages of a production process and which are, accordingly, not of the quality that the agency would ordinarily publish or disseminate as representative of its business.
