Mr John McLeay (BOOTHBY, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Minister for Administrative Services) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The Bill provides for an increase in the financial limit for the sum payable out of the Consolidated Revenue Fund for the salaries of Ministers of State, pursuant to section 66 of the Constitution. The amendment is consequent on the Government's decision to accept the recommendations in the 1980 Review by the Remuneration Tribunal. The increases to ministerial salaries represent nothing more than the flow-on of national wage case decisions handed down by the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission. I commend the Bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Uren) adjourned.
