REPLY

The Honourable Member is advised to raise this request with the Joint Standing Committee on Defence and Military Veterans. The information is restricted because it is the subject of a possible court action, which the Honourable Member was informed about at my meeting with the Portfolio Committee on 13 April 2010.
