A copy of the working draft made its way to some activist groups, who were alarmed by the thrust of the recommendations, and intensified their lobbying efforts.

Labor is now expected to produce a dissenting report, which will argue foreign citizens and entities should be banned from making donations to political parties and “associated entities”, which includes some but not all trade unions – but will draw the line at extending the ban to activist groups.

The Greens, who are also expected to issue a dissenting report, support a ban on overseas donations to political parties and associated entities but do not believe the ban should extend to activist groups.
