Westfield seek considered response from ACCC

24 June 2004

In response to media inquiries today a spokesman for Westfield issued the following statement:

Westfield Holdings is seeking a formal response from the ACCC to its request to re-open court proceedings on an unconscionable conduct action.

Westfield rejects the claim by ACCC Chairman, Graeme Samuel, that the request was a game and said the company was serious about the ACCC reopening the matter.

We are not satisfied with the response from Mr Samuel as reported in the media and would have expected the Commission to provide a more formal and considered reply.
