Senator KENDALL (Queensland) . - The Parliamentary Allowances Bill provides in clause 3 -

The Parliamentary Allowances Act 1952-1959 amended as set out in the Schedule to this Act.

If we turn to the schedule we find the following provisions -

Omit from sub-section (1.) "Two thousand two hundred and fifty ", insert " Three thousand ".

Omit from sub-section (2.) " Five hundred ", insert " Six hundred ".

Omit from sub-section (3.) "One thousand", insert "One thousand two hundred and fifty ".

Section 6 of the Act states -

There are payable to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives allowances at the rate of £2,230 a year, and there are payable to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives allowances in respect of the expenses of discharging the duties of their respective offices at the rate of £500 a year. 1 think that those provisions cover the points that Senator Cormack was making.
