Auditor-General's Report

The Hon. J.M.A. LENSINK (15:03): I do have a supplementary—apart from that comment; I apologise, Mr President. Has the Auditor-General requested documents and has the government refused?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (15:03): As I said in relation to cabinet papers, I think the Auditor-General requests documents from time to time that include full cabinet submissions and, as I understand it historically, governments of both persuasions have occasionally released papers, but also have not.
