The questioner is Oxford Law Prof. Joshua Getzler. Former High Court of Australia Justice Kenneth Hayne answers at 1:08:28. They're both Australian.

Joshua my answer is very simple. If you could let me have something in publishable form, my time for final report is 1st February next year. I'd be much obliged.

Undoubtedly Hayne is joshing! Because sitting next to Hayne, Lord Mance — former Deputy UKSC President — guffaws, and thumps the table with his hand!

Justice Hayne was acting as a Royal Commissioner on banking misconduct and the issue being discussed was in the scope of the RC. The joke (as such) was he was asking for someone to write the final report for him.
