PIAC’s submission to the Attorney General’s Department examines what types of disbursements should be covered by the Commonwealth’s new disbursements scheme, whether counsel’s fees should be considered a disbursement and whether in certain circumstances, legal representation costs should be covered. In the submission, PIAC submits that a public interest test should be adopted, with counsel’s fees and representation costs covered where they meet the public interest test.
