Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 1993 Week 08 Hansard (Tuesday, 17 August 1993) . . Page.. 2277 ..


LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY (MEMBERS' STAFF) ACT - DETERMINATIONS
Papers and Ministerial Statement

MR BERRY (Deputy Chief Minister): For the information of members, I present four determinations, dated 19 June and 17 August 1993, pursuant to the Legislative Assembly (Members' Staff) Act. I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.

MR BERRY: The determinations relate to the introduction of a new allowance in the nature of salary for staff employed under Parts II and III of the Legislative Assembly (Members' Staff) Act 1989. The first determinations apply only to senior officers and are designed to maintain remuneration relativities with ACTGS officers in lieu of performance based pay and reimbursement of work related expenses. This allowance was paid for the 1992-93 year as a lump sum after deducting work related expenses for this period that had already been claimed. The total allowance for the 1993-94 period will be paid through the regular salary system, effective from 1 July 1993. The subsequent determinations extend the allowance to include senior public affairs officers and public affairs officers grade 3, and allow for pro rata payments to be made to eligible officers who either work part time or are not in the position for a full year. This is consistent with the arrangements applying to ACT Government Service officers.

PAPER

MR BERRY (Deputy Chief Minister): For the information of members, I present a report on Mr Connolly's visit to the United States on the Australian Political Exchange Council program.
