457 Visa

(Question Nos 1396-1417, 1419-1420, 1422-1426 and 1429-1442)


Mr Briggs asked the Special Minister of State, in writing, on 19 March 2013:

How many staff in the Minister's office are currently employed on a subclass 457 visa.


Mr Dreyfus: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

The Department of Finance and Deregulation (Finance) supports the Special Minister of State in administering the Members of Parliament (Staff) Act 1984. While Finance provides supporting personnel services for staff employed under the Act, it does not hold information on visa arrangements for individual staff.
