Communications Minister Paul Fletcher says the federal government has made no decision on a parliamentary inquiry into press freedom in the wake of the Australian Federal Police’s recent media raids. However, some Coalition MPS have expressed concern that the issue may become politicised if there is a parliamentary inquiry. Liberal MP Craig Kelly argues that a special inquiry into the actions of the AFP is not necessary as parliament has oversight of the law enforcement agency.
