Mr SNEDDEN (Bruce) (Minister for Labour and National Service) - I move:

That the amendments be agreed to.

The remarks that I made in relation to the Australian Film Development Corporation Bill apply to this Bill, which, when it left this chamber provided that salaries would be paid 'as the Governor-General determines'. The Senate deleted those words and inserted 'as the Parliament provides, but until the first day of January, One thousand nine hundred and seventy-one, that remuneration shall be as is prescribed'. This will mean that after 1st January 1971 the Parliament will have to make provision for such remuneration in the Appropriation Act. The amendment leaves a period of time during which the remuneration can be determined by prescription. The Bill, as it left this chamber, provided that allowance for the statutory officers were to be allowances as the Minister determines'. The Senate has deleted those words and substituted in their place 'travelling or other allowances as are prescribed'. I explained the effect of similar amendments to the Australian Film Development Corporation Bill and I do not need to carry the explanation further.

Suggest corrections
