Federal police seek access to Mal Brough's emails

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) have sought access to computer servers at Parliament House as part of their investigation into the downfall of former speaker Peter Slipper.

The AFP has confirmed it has been conducting enquiries with the Department of Parliamentary Services.

The Department runs Parliament House and its computer servers hold the emails of Federal MPs.

The AFP told the ABC the investigations were in relation to an ongoing investigation - but did not specify which one.

The ABC understands the AFP sought access to the parliamentary servers as part of their inquiry into the role Liberal MP Mal Brough played in procuring Mr Slipper's diary.
