My question is to the Special Minister of State. I refer to the minister's previous answers, and I refer to reports in today's The Australian that the Assistant Minister for Innovation provided James Ashby with a sheet of paper that included instructions to obtain a copy of the former Speaker's diary. The Australian reports:

Mr Ashby said his lawyers had the sheet of paper and it " would undoubtedly have Wyatt's fingerprints on it''.

Is conduct of this nature consistent with the standard s this government applies ?
