Questions without Notice
Special Minister of State
My question is to the Special Minister of State. I refer to the minister's previous answer, where he claimed that he did not request a copy of the former Speaker's diary when he sent a text to James Ashby in 2012 that read:
Can that be emailed James it is hard to read Mal.email@example.com
If he was not asking for the diary, what on earth is the parliament to think that he was asking for?
Despite the best efforts of the opposition, they have not put one thing forward that was not already in the Federal Court and that has not already been dealt with by the Federal Court. I stand by all of my actions as being entirely appropriate and entirely honest.
