QUESTIONS - Wednesday 27 November 1996 Mr Stirling: The federal police were covering up though! Who is covering up now? Mr SPEAKER: Order! Mr STONE: I was told subsequently that the AFP report, as it was referred to, in fact is a file. I would settle for the federal Director of Public Prosecutions advice. I have asked for that, but I cannot obtain even that. I would accept... Mr Bailey: Tabic one that fulfils your requirements. Mr STONE: I will pick up the interjection from the member for Wanguri. He reflects then on the partiality of the Director of Public Prosecutions. Mr Bailey: No, on you. Mr STONE: That is the intent of his interjection when he tells me to come here and table the report that suits my needs. Let me make this point very clear. I did call for the release of information from the Australian Federal Police and I also called for the release of the advice from the federal Director of Public Prosecutions. I have received neither, but I will tell you what I have done. Mr Stirling interjecting. Mr STONE: I have come into this Chamber - if the member for Nhulunbuy will be quiet and listen - and I have tabled up-front the advice of the Northern Territory Director of Public Prosecutions. That certainly puts me ... Mr Stirling: Not the police report. Mr SPEAKER: Order! Mr STONE: ... in front of where the federal authorities are at this point. The member claims there is a report. I say again that I have not seen the report that is referred to in the advice. Get that through your heads. I would not be standing here ... Mr Bailey interjecting. Mr STONE: If the member for Wanguri will be quiet and listen, I would not be standing here and claiming not to have seen the report prepared by Assistant Commissioner Valentin if, in fact, I had seen it. The consequence of that would be that my career would be over. That is how serious it would be. I have not seen the report prepared by Assistant Commissioner Valentin ... Mr Stirling: That should stop you getting electoral information ... Mr SPEAKER: Order! 1832
