The government recognises the importance of witnesses' being able to give evidence safely and in confidence at royal commissions and of the need to balance this key concern with the principle of open proceedings. Receiving advice on these issues, the government is carefully considering options as to how we can best achieve that certainty. A decision by the government will be made shortly.

Question agreed to.
