My question is to the Attorney-General. Given the catastrophic failings with DNA testing in Queensland and other alarming forensic failures, like with Mr Keogh in South Australia, Mr Eastman in the ACT and Ms Neill-Fraser in Tasmania, will you take the lead and work with the states and territories to improve and harmonise Australia's forensic services to restore trust in our criminal justice system? This would include reviewing the National Institute of Forensic Science and the National Association of Testing Authorities.
