Mr Baldwin asked the Minister for Defence Science and Personnel, in writing, on 24 November 2008:

In respect of the recent investigation by the Australian Federal Police into the circumstances surrounding the leaking of a defence brief containing sexual allegations about Australian soldiers and entertainer Tania Zaetta: was he provided with the same ‘hot issue brief’ given to the Minister for Defence; if so, was his office subject to the same investigation, and if so, what were the findings of the investigation.

Mr Snowdon (Minister for Defence Science and Personnel) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

No, I did not receive a copy of the Hot Issue Brief. In regard to the investigation, all relevant people who were in receipt of the brief were interviewed and investigated.
