With thanks to the Bullet,

HIH Royal Commission (Investigation into Australia's largest insurance bankruptcy). Day 131. Wayne Martin QC examining Raymond Reginald Williams, CEO and Member of the Order of Australia (AM).

Martin: "Could you tell us please if, on your frequent first-class trips to London, you booked the seat next to you for your briefcase ?"

Williams: "I don't recall specifically. But that may have been the case, on some occasions. "

Martin: "That your briefcase was also traveling first class?"

Williams: "That may have been the case."

Martin: "Did you express the view to Qantas (the Australian airline) that this briefcase should be eligible for frequent flier points ?"

Williams: "I can't recall that."

Martin: "And were you subsequently informed that said briefcase would not be eligible for such points on the grounds that it was not, in fact, a person ?"

Williams: "That may have been the airline's position on that issue."

Martin: "Was that briefcase, from that point on, booked under the name of Casey Williams ?"

Williams: "Casey Reginald Williams, AM."
