The Prime Minister's office has said a request to deport the man who killed a seven-month-old baby in Wagga was the only contact between then-Immigration Minister Scott Morrison and Daryl Maguire.
The Daily Advertiser understands that Mr Maguire, as Wagga former's state MP, asked Mr Morrison to deport Christopher Hoerler, a Papua New Guinea national who was convicted in 2003 for the manslaughter of Jordan Anderson-Smith.
Labor asked Mr Morrison in federal Parliament this week about his contact with Mr Maguire after the former Wagga MP admitted to the Independent Commission Against Corruption that he ran a cash-for-visas scam.
The Prime Minister's office had denied any contact between Mr Maguire and Mr Morrison as Immigration Minister between September 2013 and December 2014, before issuing another statement on Wednesday.
"A secondary search of [The Home Affairs] database has identified one piece of correspondence from 2014 to Scott Morrison from Daryl Maguire ... on behalf of a constituent. The then-minister responded factually to outline the [review] process," the statement said.
Hoerler admitted to assaulting baby Jordan at an Ashmont home in 2000 after a party.
He was granted parole in August 2014 on the condition that he be deported from Australia, and was taken into custody by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection upon his release from prison and later removed to PNG.
Riverina MP Michael McCormack was asked in federal Parliament on Wednesday about his contact with Mr Maguire over road projects and land acquisitions.
Mr McCormack said there had been no contact over land but they had discussed freight and road projects in the Wagga electorate.
NSW Parliament agreed to One Nation MLC Mark Latham's motion on Wednesday demanding Premier Gladys Berejiklian and numerous government agencies hand over documents related to Mr Maguire.
"We want to look at [Mr Maguire's] business interests and interaction with government decision makers ... this bloke was in everything but a bath," Mr Latham said.
"[The government] has got to produce those papers, it's a legal power of the upper house."
