Bushfires-inquiry

(Question No 661)

Mr Stefaniak

asked the Chief Minister, upon notice:

In relation to the January Bushfires:

Do you intend to make a statement or submission to the McLeod Inquiry, given that you were at Emergency Services Headquarters on 18 January 2003.

Do you intend to give evidence before the Coroner about the fires of 18 January 2003.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

I am open to any request for information from Mr McLeod, but otherwise I do not intend to make a submission to the Inquiry.

I understand that it would be very unusual for a head of Government to be involved in giving evidence in an inquiry of this kind, but should the Coroner wish me to appear I will make myself available.
