Conduct of the 2007 federal election and matters related thereto
Final

CHAIR (Mr Melham) —I declare open this hearing of the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters inquiring into the conduct of the 2007 election. This is the second day of hearings in Sydney for this inquiry. As I said yesterday, the committee might return to Sydney later in the year if it needs to take evidence from additional witnesses. As I mentioned yesterday in my opening statement, to date the committee has received 181 submissions to this inquiry and submissions have raised numerous issues which the committee is considering carefully. While examining the submissions, the committee identified a number of issues which it would like to take additional evidence on and we will certainly be doing that later in the year. I would like to thank today’s witnesses for appearing.
