Senator HARRADINE(10.19) —I want to make it very clear that at half past 10 tonight I could make a formal announcement here that I am the leader of the Senator Brian Harradine party. Instantly I would receive another $17,000 a year, plus a number of perquisites. I do not intend to do that. That is not contained in this legislation because of the operations of the Remuneration Tribunal. I am not concerned about that sort of business. I am concerned about any future situation that may arise, not so much in my case as in other cases, with regard to office holders being office holders of recognised political parties and being dependent upon the good offices of a Prime Minister. All I wanted was at least an explanation of that, and I think I have received it: The person concerned would have regard to the relevant provisions of other legislation.
