Senator AULICH —by leave-I wish to draw the attention of the Senate to an error in the report of Estimates Committee E dealing with the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. Page 4 of the report gives figures for per diem rates paid to commissioners, other than Commissioner Wyvill. These figures are wrong. Commissioners, other than Commissioner Wyvill, receive an annual salary of $100,402 plus allowances as determined by the Remuneration Tribunal. Only Commissioner Wyvill receives a per diem fee. On behalf of the Committee I apologise for any inaccuracies that have appeared in that part of the report and make this explanation as part of the process of retracting those statements.
