The Australian Federal Police has decided not to investigate Human Services Minister Alan Tudge over his office's decision to disclose to a journalist the personal information of a critic of the Centrelink robo-debt notice system.

In late February, blogger and welfare recipient Andie Fox published a comment piece on The Canberra Times detailing some of her experiences with with Centrelink’s debt debacle. In response to claims made in the article, Human Services Minister Alan Tudge’s office gave Canberra Times journalist, Paul Malone, Fox’s own personal information, which formed the basis of an article denying Fox’s original claims.
