Just to the point of order raised by the Leader of the House: in the first instance, the references to the sub judice rule in Practice have many precedents that would allow a question of this nature. Secondly, if the Attorney-General did have a view that nothing could be said that proffered a view on the investigation, then a whole lot of what he has said dismissing the investigation would itself have been out of order. The question simply goes to facts of earlier answers as to whether or not the minister for emissions reduction can substantiate what he has claimed to be true given what's on the public record.
