Questions without Notice
Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction
Let me read from the department's evidence, which was made public in January, four months ago: 'The department did ascertain that the City of Sydney's website was accessed by the minister's office on 9 September 2019. The department's system allows individuals to directly print from the website.' This matter was the ninth political referral from those opposite, and, in keeping with the previous eight, the matter was considered and closed, not once, but twice. As the commissioner said, the matter is finalised, full stop. I'm getting on with protecting lives and livelihoods, because I know that a strong Australia coming out of the COVID-19 crisis requires a secure and reliable supply of energy, liquid fuels, gas and electricity. That's what I'm focusing on every day. Those opposite should do the same.
