    3. the Australian Taxation Office;
  4. the desirability and feasibility of extending ACLEI's jurisdiction to include the Department of Immigration and Border Protection;
  5. whether an activity-based approach to ACLEI's jurisdiction would be preferable to the current jurisdiction-based approach;
