Mr Joyce has been facing pressure over a decision to shift the government's pesticides agency from Canberra to Armidale.

But a Senate estimates hearing on Tuesday was told an analysis of the relocation would be subject to a ministerial public interest immunity claim, citing cabinet considerations.
