Senator COONEY —I give notice that, five sitting days after today, I shall move:

That Public Service Board Determination No. 81 of 1986, made on 23 October 1986 under Section 82d of the Public Service Act 1922, be disallowed.

I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.


Senator COONEY —This determination concerns payments of certain moneys made retrospective to 18 months ago. Traditionally, the Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances puts any retrospective legislation under close scrutiny even when, as appears in this case, it is beneficial. We are corresponding with the Public Service Board requesting an explanation for this retrospectivity, but today is the last day to give a protective notice of motion.
