Mr McClelland asked the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations, upon notice, on 12 August 2003:

What was the cost of his intervention in the Australian Industrial Relations Commission in the application by the Maritime Union of Australia, the Australian Institute of Marine Power Engineers and the Australian Maritime Officers' Union to vary the Maritime Industry Seagoing Award 1999 by adding CSL Pacific as a respondent to the Award.


Mr Andrews (Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

As at 25 September 2003 the legal costs for intervention in this matter were $20,253.00 (including GST). This covers the fees and disbursements of the Australian Government Solicitor and fees of counsel.

Officers of the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations were also involved in work associated with the intervention. It is not practicable to provide details of the costs of their involvement.
