Special Minister of State

Mr DREYFUS (IsaacsDeputy Manager of Opposition Business) (14:15): My question is to the Special Minister of State. This week in question time, the minister said:

I at no time passed any diaries to any journalists. Can I be any clearer than that?

Can the minister be clear with the House now: did the minister pass any documents concerning the former Speaker to anyone, including, but not limited to, members of parliament or staff?

Mr BROUGH (FisherMinister for Defence Materiel and Science and Special Minister of State) (14:15): I can confirm for the member for Isaacs that every document that I have ever had any part to do with has been in the Federal Court. They have been presented to the Federal Court. There is no more; there are no less. Any document that you are referring to that has gone through my lawyers to the Federal Court is the sum total.
