TREASURY SEMINAR PARLIAMENTARY CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION FOOTAGE
The Hon. GREG PEARCE:
I direct my question to the Treasurer. Have Treasury officials succeeded in identifying the bureaucrat who is alleged to have leaked the information that only $16.5 billion is available for road and rail capital spending, other than borrowing, to 2021? Was the person identified as a result of the improper use of the Parliament's CCTV video recordings? What instructions did the Treasurer give in relation to the matter, and what action has he taken since?
The Hon. MICHAEL COSTA:
The Hon. Greg Pearce's question is interesting. I presume he is referring to a newspaper article that appeared last week purporting to represent the undertakings at an internal Treasury corporate planning day. If that is the case, all I can say to the honourable member is that it is a matter for the Secretary of Treasury, and I am sure that, knowing the Secretary of Treasury as I do, he will act appropriately.
