(Question No. 855)


Senator Chipp asked the Minister representing the Minister for Territories and Local Government, upon notice, on 2 May 1984:

What are the names, dates of appointment, and salaries of all persons appointed to the boards and commissions of statutory authorities under the jurisdiction of the Minister.


Senator Gietzelt —The Minister for Territories and Local Government has provided the following response to the honourable senator's question:

The information requested by the honourable senator is provided in the following table. It should be noted that:

For the purposes of this exercise, a statutory authority was defined as being an office or organisation, corporate or incorporated, constituted by or pursuant to powers conferred by Act of Parliament or Ordinance of the Territory, whose functions and authority are derived wholly or principally from the Act or from the Ordinance.

Statutory officer holders, that is, those persons who occupy an office formally created by statute ('Controller of Stock' under the Stock Control Ordinance) are not included in the following list of statutory authorities.

The detail relating to statutory authorities was correct as of 19 September 1984.
