Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott says he will be happy to confirm or deny rumours of a relationship with his chief of staff Peta Credlin, but will need to run it by her first.
“If there was in fact an affair, then she’ll know about it,” Mr Abbott said today.
“She managed the day-to-day. I never got caught up in that level of detail”.
Mr Abbott said Ms Credlin would certainly know about anything that came across her desk.
