Senator MILLINER (QUEENSLAND) - My question is directed to the Attorney-General. Can he inform the Senate whether there is a policy ensuring that employees of sensitive defence and security establishments are Australian citizens?

Senator MURPHY - I can only answer in regard to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation. Some time after assuming office as Attorney-General I directed that the policy be pursued that all officers be Australian citizens. Quite a number of them were not. That directive has been implemented. I cannot speak in regard to the other security and defence intelligence organisations but if the honourable senator will put the question in notice no doubt the answers can be obtained from the appropriate Ministers.
