Source: Statement of Registrable Interests - this contains interests declared as at 9/08/22 and alterations since then.  

This statement contains interests declared as being held on 9/08/22 and any alterations since then, including new interests and amendments and deletions to existing interests. The date of an alteration is when it was declared to the register, not when the change occurred.

Unfortunately, due to Senate restrictions the interests of senators' spouses/partners and dependent children are not publicly disclosable.

Open Politics has amended the wording and formatting of some MPs' and senators' declared interests to improve readability or to correct mistakes. To notify us of an error or omission, contact us.

Breach: Van breached the register rules by failing to declare his junket to Egypt in August 2022 as a guest of the Coalition for Conservation.
