recommended to the Board and the claims of the other applicants not pursued further, with their applications and resumes destroyed.

I am further advised that Ms Clark's referees in mid 2004 were the Chief Financial Officer of the Victorian Department of Treasury and Infrastructure, the Chief Executive Officer of Calvary Hospital, and a senior Director of the National Crime Authority. The members of the interview committee spoke separately with each referee to assure that the process was fair. All referees reported very positively about Ms Clark. In particular, fiscal responsibility, change management ability, leadership and focus on outcomes were assessed very highly overall.

(6) I am advised that as a result of her interview and her referees' reports, Ms Clark was assessed as the suitable appointee to the temporary position of Executive Manager, Totalcare Fleet. She was duly appointed to that position by Totalcare.

Policing—prosecutions

(Question No 1373)

Dr Foskey asked the Minister for Police and Emergency Services, upon notice, on 14 November 2006:

(1) What is the number of criminal prosecutions attempted by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) in the ACT in (a) 2003-04, (b) 2004-05 and (c) 2005-06;

(2) How many criminal prosecutions have had AFP evidence ruled inadmissible due to the AFP not following proper procedures regarding interrogations and forensic examinations, or losing exhibits etc in (a) 2003-04, (b) 2004-05 and (c) 2005-06;

(3) What is the estimated amount of ACT Government funding to AFP that has been spent on the cases and in the years listed in part (2);

(4) What attempts are being made by the ACT Government and AFP to minimise the problems cited in part (2);

(5) How successful have these actions been, and can any quantifiable evidence be provided to support the answer.

Mr Corbell

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

(1) Prosecution statistics are recorded as 'completed charges' as generated by the ACT Director of Public Prosecutions and displayed within AFP Annual Reports.

The number of completed charges placed before ACT Courts (including criminal and traffic offences) are:

a. 13,724

b. 10,563

c. 12,917

(2) Statistics are not held. Analysis is too resource intensive as it would require each failed or withdrawn prosecution to be individually examined.

(3) See answer to Part (2).
