Ms Gallagher

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

The assertion that this "special investigation"was proposed by the Attorney General is wrong. It is a matter of public record that former Chief Justice Miles directed pursuant to section 475 of the Crimes Act 1900 that an inquiry be undertaken. The former Chief Justice made this direction following an approach direct to him by Mr Eastman.

(1) A total of $60,766.30 in direct expenditure has been incurred in this matter.

(2) Employee expenses

Total: $ 2,940.00
