Senator McGRATH (QueenslandAssistant Minister to the Prime Minister) (16:30): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator McGRATH: The government does not believe this inquiry is needed given that Alastair MacGibbon, the government's cybersecurity advisor, has been appointed by the Prime Minister to conduct a thorough review. Mr MacGibbon's review team has been formed in the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, with representatives also from the Australian Signals Directorate, the Department of Finance, the Department of the Treasury, the Digital Transformation Office and the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner. The review team is expected to conclude its report by the end of September 2016.
