The Commission of Audit was established by the government on October 13.

On December 11, the Senate established a Select Committee to inquire into the Commission of Audit and any reports it makes to the government.

The Commission’s chairman, Tony Shepherd, made an opening statement to the hearing. Over four hours, he and other members of the commission took questions from the committee in what was a wide-ranging and largely unproductive fishing expedition.
