Questions without Notice – Ministerial Staff
21 June 2007
Mr ALBANESE (3.15 p.m.)—My question is to the Minister for Industry, Tourism and Resources. Can the minister confirm that he has been allocated more staff than the Treasurer? Are these extra staff deployed as members of the secret unit that operates out of his Brisbane ministerial office, performing the same role as the secret unit that operates out of the Attorney-General’s office in Sydney?
Mr IAN MACFARLANE—There is no secret media unit in my office.
