MOTOR VEHICLES FOR MEMBERS
Question from Mr Kaine to the Chief Minister:
With regard to Remuneration Tribunal Determination Number 30, sections 3.1 and 3.2 relate to the provision of motor vehicles to Members. In part, it says that cars must be Australian-made and have private plates except in special circumstances with the agreement of the Chief Minister.
(1) Has the Chief Minister exercised discretionary power in relation to this and under what circumstances?
(2) Can the Chief Minister give details on the additional cost for each case?
(3) What budgetary arrangements were made to cover the costs?
