Senator GIETZELT - Has the AttorneyGeneral seen reports by Mr Renouf, permanent head of the Department of Foreign Affairs, that Australian Security Intelligence Organisation agents have been active in most Australian embassies abroad? Is the Minister able to say whether these persons were placed in the embassies by the previous Liberal Government for matters unrelated to Australia's security? What steps is the Government taking to remove ASIO agents from our embassies, particularly in those countries with which Australia has close and friendly relations?

Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Attorney-General) -I ask that the honourable senator place the question on notice.
