(Question No. 530)


Ms Julie Bishop asked the Minister representing the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy, in writing, on 18 August 2011:

On what date did the Minister or staff of the Minister's office first see the text contained in the request for tender for the Australia Network contract and/or associated documents.


Mr Albanese: The Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy has provided the following answer to the honourable member's question:

This question is ambiguous. The RFT is the document issued to bidders. I was made aware of its content at the time I was appointed Approver by Cabinet.
