A Bill is before the Australian Parliament that merges Centrelink and 
Medicare into the portfolio agency, the Dept of Human Service (DHS).

DHS lost earlier gradiose social control schemes like the Access Card 
because they were forced to let the public see what they were up to.

With this one, they've dug deeper into their bag of dirty tricks in 
order to achieve zero public scrutiny.
