I have received both the report from the AFP investigation into the unauthorised disclosure of Commonwealth documents and the review into PM&C’s security practices, procedures and culture conducted by Mr Ric Smith AO PSM.

I am considering carefully both reports and in the coming weeks I will provide a detailed statement in response to the findings.

This is an important issue for my Department and it has broader implications for the APS. Accordingly, I am considering the implications of the findings carefully before making any further public statement.
