My question is to the Minister of Justice. Given that the minister was informed of the Australian Federal Police's intention to execute a search warrant at the home of the Special Minister of State, did the minister or his office inform any of his ministerial colleagues, including but not limited to the Prime Minister, the Attorney-General, the Special Minister of State, other ministers or any of their respective officers?

After the warrants were executed, as I would normally do in a matter like this, I informed the Prime Minister's chief of staff and the Attorney-General as the cabinet minister in the portfolio.
