Ms O'CONNOR - Okay. I now want to get some information, it is the same information we sought last year. We are interested in understanding page 313 of the State Growth Performance Information, as it relates to skilled visa and state nominations of skilled migrants. Last year we received information on the total number of visas issued under each subclass by financial year from 2013-14 to 2017-18 and the country of origin for nominees. To be clear with you, we have last year's which were tabled. I know there will be COVID-19 impacts, but we are looking for the 2019-20 data.

Mr FERGUSON - I do not know if it is precisely the same format you received last year.

Ms O'CONNOR - Last year it was about the number issued under each subclass and the country of origin. I am happy Mr Evans or minister to put it on notice so we can get the tabulated information we got last year.

Mr EVANS - Last year we gave you a table with all of that information. We would be happy to update that information and provide it, if that is okay with you.

Ms O'CONNOR - Okay, if I put that on notice, the information will come back?

Mr FERGUSON - We will take it on notice to provide the same format and level of detail as you are holding in your hand.
