Big Tobacco Donations to AUS Political Parties

In Australia it is a legal requirement that donations made by individuals or entities to registered political parties to the value of or greater than $10,000[62] are declared to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC). The AEC posts on its website[63] donor annual returns dating back to the financial year 1998?99. Table 10.22 shows the total amounts of tobacco money received by the three major political parties in Australia since then.
