Questions without Notice – Liberal Party Fundraiser in Kirribilli House (3)

Questions without Notice – Liberal Party Fundraiser in Kirribilli House (3)

12 June 2007

Mr ALBANESE (3.19 p.m.)—My question is again to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister confirm that attendees at the Liberal Party fundraising drinks function at Kirribilli House on Friday, 1 June 2007 were met by people wearing badges from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet?

Mr Ticehurst interjecting—

The SPEAKER—Order! The member for Dobell is warned! The Manager of Opposition Business has the call.

Mr ALBANESE—How many people from the Prime Minister’s department were at the function, and what were their roles?

Mr HOWARD—I am informed that the people attending the function—it was not a Liberal Party fundraising function—were met by members of my staff wearing a badge with ‘Prime Minister’s staff’ on the badge.
