[1] HOLMES JA:  I agree with the reasons of Morrison JA and the order he proposes.

[2] GOTTERSON JA:  I agree with the order proposed by Morrison JA and with the reasons given by his Honour.

[3] MORRISON JA:  On 24 February 2015 the Court delivered its reasons for dismissing the appeal in this matter.  Submissions on the question of costs were invited.  In the result only the Public Trustee has made submissions.

[4] Ms Ban was unsuccessful in her appeal.  In those circumstances the Public Trustee submits that costs should follow the event.

[5] There is no reason why that course should not be followed.  I would therefore order that the appellant pay the respondent’s costs, of and incidental to the appeal, to be assessed on the standard basis.
