The Hon. PETER BREEN: My question without notice is to the Minister for Police. Will the Minister inform the House whether any complaints have been received about the independence of the Department of Forensic Medicine as far as the integrity of DNA evidence is concerned? Can he say what level of funding is provided to forensic medicine by NSW Police and whether any measures are in place for the independent handling and analysis of DNA evidence?
The Hon. MICHAEL COSTA: I will obtain an answer to this detailed question for the Hon. Peter Breen.
