Senator BRANDIS (QueenslandAttorney-General, Vice-President of the Executive Council and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (20:29): I am sorry, Senator Xenophon, I am not going to comment on a hypothetical case, nor am I going to be giving assurances to the chamber in relation to a matter in which primarily the Director of Public Prosecutions would decide whether or not a prosecution should be brought. I have told you, and I think you know this, that no prosecution has been commenced against either of those people, and in those circumstances I think it would be absolutely inappropriate for me to comment.
