Mr DAVIDSON (Dawson) (PostmasterGeneral) . - I will not attempt to place any actual limit on the amount that the person concerned may earn, because in each case that would be determined by the particular circumstances. The honorable member for Kingston (Mr. Galvin) asked whether one of these officers would be allowed to take a directorship on a television station. Of course that would not be allowed, because it would be an occupation which would impinge on his job as a member of the Australian Broadcasting Control Board. It would react very seriously against his continued employment. This is not something new; in fact, it will bring this measure into conformity with other acts of a similar character. I understand that there is provision under the Public Service regulations for members of the Public Service to accept small honorariums. Some may go out lecturing. That is the sort of thing we envisage, and that is the way it will be administered. The provisions will not cover jobs or employment which would react in any way, either in point of time or loyalty, against the job with the board. Anything like that would not be allowed.

Suggest corrections
