A spokeswoman for the commission would not confirm any information regarding hearing witnesses, saying the schedule would be released on Monday. 

The retired Bishop of Ballarat, Ronald Mulkearns, was expected to give evidence at the inquiry but has been excused due to ill health.
He is in palliative care but could be called in future if his health improves.
"Bishop Mulkearns remains subject to a summons and should his health improve sufficiently the royal commission intends to call him to give evidence in public," Counsel Assisting Gail Furness SC told the commission.
The focus on Bishop Mulkearns will be his response to abuse allegations against Monsignor John Day, Father Paul Ryan, Father Gerald Ridsdale and an unnamed priest, and whether he covered up the abuse.
