QUESTIONS WITHOUT NOTICE (5) – Exclusive Brethren

1 March 2007

Mr ALBANESE (2.57 p.m.)—My question is addressed to the Special Minister of State. How much money did the Exclusive Brethren spend on the 2004 election campaign to publish ads such as this in the Adelaide Advertiser: ‘Keep Howard Prime Minister’? How much money was spent on the production and distribution of the pamphlet ‘Keep Howard in Bennelong’?

Mr NAIRN—The member for Grayndler can get any information he likes about the expenditure on the elections of 2004, 2001, 1998 or whichever election he likes to choose from the AEC website, which publishes all the expenditure.
