Senator YOUNG (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I direct my question to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. I refer to my previous question of 5 December, when the Leader of the Government said that he would refer to Mr Bryant, the Minister for the Capital Territory, the question of whether or not he would table the file concerning Miss Morosi 's application for a government flat. Will Mr Bryant table this file, and if not, why not?

Senator MURPHY - The file is at present with the Commonwealth Police. The honourable senator may recall that the letter which was sent by me was leaked out -

Senator Wheeldon - Stolen.

Senator MURPHY - It was stolen from the Department of the Capital Territory and leaked out, apparently into the hands of the Opposition or someone who gave it to Opposition members. Mr Bryant called in the Commonwealth Police, who obtained the original file and are investigating the disappearance of the letter. However, some documents which have been given to me are copies of what the Commonwealth Police have, including a copy of the letter which I sent to Mr Bryant. These documents are available.

Senator Young - Does that include all the documentation in relation to the matter?

Senator MURPHY - It is the documentation which has been given to me. I will table these papers. If there is anything else that the honourable senator wants and we have it, I will table those papers. I think the honourable senator did ask some questions before about this same matter including, as I recall it, whether some lease had been signed by Miss Morosi. I think that either those documents or the information I have from Mr Bryant shows that no lease was signed by Miss Morosi.
