My question is to the Minister representing the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Senator Brandis. I refer to the foreign minister who said earlier today that she was aware that her chief of staff attended a meeting of conspirators at Mr Hendy's house on the eve of the leadership coup, because:

It is part of my job as deputy leader to understand what the party room is thinking. It is part of my job to keep in touch with members of the backbench either through my staff or personally, and that is what I do.

Is it part of Ms Bishop's job to orchestrate challenges against the sitting Prime Minister?
