Labour leader David Shearer says there is the "smell of a coverup" about a journalist's phone records being handed over to a ministerial inquiry.
Parliament Speaker David Carter confirmed today three months worth of phone records detailing calls between Fairfax journalist Andrea Vance and people within the parliamentary precinct were handed over to a ministerial inquiry.
The revelation is in stark contrast to assurances given last week that Vance's phone records were not supplied.
The inquiry was investigating the unauthorised leak of a report on the Government Communications Security Bureau.
