Senator Walsh (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Prime Minister, upon notice:

(   1 ) What is the number of statutory boards established by the Australian Government.

(2)   What are the names of the persons who sit on each of these Boards.

(3)   What salary and/or allowances and/or sitting fees are received by the members of each Board.

Senator Murphy - The Prime Minister has provided the following information for answer to the honourable senator's question:

(1)   to (3) Information in the form requested by the honourable senator is not readily available and to assemble it would be a major task.

I would however direct the honourable senator's attention to the following sources of relevant information:

Australian Government Directory- published in March 1974, this gives details, as at the time of publication of statutory boards established by the Australian Government. I am informed that a Supplement updating the current Directory should be issued in October.

My answer to Senate Question No. 303 (Senate Hansard, 25 September 1973, pp 861-2)- this indicates the nature of fees and allowances paid to members of various Government boards, commissions, committees, etc.

Remuneration Tribunal 1974 Review- this document, tabled in the Senate on 24 July 1974, provides a useful list of authorities and offices although the salaries and allowances proposed therein have not been implemented.
