Senator McCOLL - The answers are -

1.   No officer of the Home Affairs Department has been continuously employed. One officer of that Department has been in daily attendance at the sittings of the Inquiry to assist in handling the papers. In order to supply copies of the numerous and voluminous documents asked for by the Committee in connexion with the Inquiry, a large number of officers, about thirtyeight, have been intermittently engaged in copying documents, preparing information desired by the Committee, &c.

I understand that three officers of the Crown Law Department have been associated with the Inquiry, but except for a very brief period, only one officer at a time has been employed on the case.
