Mr RUDD (2:45 PM) —My question is to the Minister for Foreign Affairs. I refer to Mr Andrew Bolt's comments on Sunday confirming that he had access to the ONA report entitled Iraq: humanitarian dimension. Will the minister formally confirm to the parliament that neither he nor any member of his staff provided Mr Bolt with a copy of, a summary of or a briefing on the contents of that report?

Mr DOWNER (Minister for Foreign Affairs) —I have said already that my office, and obviously I, will fully cooperate with the police, and we will not be commenting any further until police investigations are completed.
