My question is to the Prime Minister. My question is regarding the alleged rapist of Brittany Higgins and at least two other women. Has the alleged rapist of Ms Higgins held a lobbyist pass, been on the lobbyist register or had lobbyist meetings or communications with ministers, their staff or departmental officials at any time since the rape occurred? Has he visited Parliament House or any other Commonwealth ministerial office since that time? If you are unaware, will you make inquiries and report back to the House?

I thank the member for his question. No, I cannot confirm those matters. I would be very happy to confirm those matters for you, and I will have it attended to as quickly as possible.
