The federal government announced on 29 May that it would refund $721 million in debts that it extracted from people through its controversial Robodebt scheme. Over 370,000 people were impacted by the scheme, with some receiving multiple notices. Attorney-General Christian Porter has refused to apologise to people who received notices under the scheme, although he concedes that civilly, it was unlawful. Despite the government’s refund decision, a class action against the scheme will continue.
