Mr WARD (EAST SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask the Prime Minister under which vote of the Parliament provision is made for payments by the Commonwealth security service to persons who furnish information to it. Upon what basis and by whom is the decision on the amount to be paid made ? Who is responsible for authorizing payment? Finally, if the Prime Minister is not the person who actually authorizes payment, is- he kept informed of such transactions, and is his consent required before any payment is made?
