Mr UREN (Reid) (Minister for Urban and Regional Development) - I move:

Omit sub-section (5) of proposed section 6, subsitute the following sub-section:

(5)   Where the Commission is constituted as provided in sub-section (4) of this section, section 8, sub-section (3) of section 8a and sections 9, 10, 11 and 14 apply as if references to the Chairman and the office of Chairman were references to the Commissioner constituting the Commission by virtue of sub-section (4) of this section and the office of that Commissioner, respectively, and any references to a part-time Commissioner were omitted.'.

Omit sub-section (2) of proposed section 8a, substitute the following sub-sections:

(2)   A part-time Commissioner shall be paid remuneration at such rate as the Parliament fixes, but, until 1 January 1974, the rate of that remuneration shall be as prescribed. (2a) The Associate Commissioner shall be paid remuneration at the rate of Twenty thousand five hundred and two dollars per year. (2b) Until the Commission is constituted as provided in sub-section (1) of section 6, the Commissioner constituting the Commission shall be paid remuneration at the rate of Twenty-nine thousand two hundred and fifty dollars per year and an annual allowance at the rate of One thousand seven hundred and fifty dollars per year.'.

The Cities Commission Bill was drafted prior to the Remuneration and Allowances Bill which varied the salaries of the statutory office holders. However, the Remuneration and Allowances Bill was introduced and passed by the House and overtook the Cities Commission Bill. It is therefore necessary to amend the Cities Commission Bill to take account of this occurrence and its effect on the statutory office holders. The amendments are simply intended to make this Bill consistent with the provisional Remuneration and Allowances Act 1973.
