The Australian Federal Police has confirmed it has been conducting enquiries with the Department of Parliamentary Services.

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

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

In an earlier statement, a spokesperson for the AFP confirmed officers have not raided a politician's office in the past fortnight.

It also ruled out having seized material under search warrant from the Parliamentary Offices of a federal politician "in the past two weeks".

But it did not say if it had accessed the parliamentary computer system.

Meanwhile, outgoing MP Mal Brough said there had been no raids on his Parliament House office.

In a statement, Mr Brough said "rumours are circulating through Parliament House that the AFP have raided my Parliament House Office".

"These rumours are completely false," he said.

Mr Brough said that the AFP has not sought any "additional assistance in any way" from him since January 7.
