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

That the Bill be now read a second time. 1 have explained the background to this Bill in my second reading speech on the Australian Film Development Corporation Bill (No. 2). By this Bill, the Parliament will fix a salary for the Assistant Directors of the Snowy Mountains Engineering Corporation at the rate of $15,592 a year. It is not necessary at this stage to determine the salary for the Director of the Corporation. This is because the duties of the position of Director will for the time being be carried out by the person holding the office of Commissioner of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-electric Authority. The Bill lays it down that any salary payable to the Director will be as the Parliament provides. An appropriate further Bill will need to be introduced when the need arises to determine a salary for the Director.

Again anticipating the honourable member for Lang (Mr Stewart), the salary set out in the Bill is slightly more than level 4 of the Second Division of the Public Service. Other examples are Associate Commissioners of the National Capital Development Commission.

Leave granted for second reading to proceed forthwith.
