The Steering Committee for the Review of Government Service Provision, in the Report on Government Services 2009, estimated recurrent expenditure on justice in 2007-08 at $498 per person. This excluded spending by governments on items such as justice services outside the scope of the Report (for example, expenditure on specialist courts). Total recurrent expenditure was $10.7 billion (b) in 2007-08; $7.1b was spent on police services and $2.4b on corrective services (table 13.2).
