Allegations of sexual harassment and abuse are serious. Neither the minister nor the department was aware of allegations about Don Burke before recent media reports. Making unfounded and incorrect assertions about ministers is disrespectful. The government agrees to table documents from the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources for the period between 1 November 2016 and prior to 4 December 2017 by 5 pm on 8 December as follows: (a) documents produced by, with or featuring Don Burke; (b) advice provided to the minister by the department relating to social media featuring Don Burke; (c) documents relating to social media featuring the minister and Don Burke.
