Senator HARRADINE(10.14) —I wish to ask a somewhat innocuous question . Reference is made in clause 3 on page 2 of the Members of Parliament (Staff) Bill 1984 under the heading 'interpretation' to the definition of 'relevant office'. Paragraph (f) refers to a recognised political party. What is the definition of 'a recognised political party'? Would a recognised political party include one that is registered pursuant to the provisions of the Commonwealth Electoral Act?
