Questions without Notice
Special Minister of State
My question is to the Special Minister of State. I refer to the questioning between Liz Hayes and James Ashby on the 60 Minutes program, to which the minister has referred, in particular Liz Hayes saying:
He's asking you to be deceptive? To hand over information that isn't Mal Brough's?
Mr Ashby's answer was:
I must admit I was more than willing to assist Mal with the information that he was seeking.
How is that answer in the same program consistent with what the minister has told this House repeatedly?
