The prohibition on Glencore executives commenting on a bid for Rio Tinto lapsed on 8 April 2015, six months after Rio rejected a takeover approach. Glencore is tipped to make another bid for Rio, but Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey is believed to have explicitly ruled out Federal Government approval for such a deal. His comments are said to have been made at a private meeting with business leaders and mining industry executives in late March
