Senator PETER RAE(5.32) — Am I correct in understanding that a 15 per cent salary loading applies to staff of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation who have to start work before 6 a.m.? Do some staff commence work at 5.56 a.m., four minutes before 6 a.m., and receive the 15 per cent loading for the whole of the time that they are on duty? That allegation has been raised with me both specifically and generally. Is it accurate? If so, can something be done, in some practical way, to effect what might amount to a quite substantial saving?
