Senator DALY (through Senator Barnes) - The answers are -

1.   Yes.

2.   No. It was the intention of the Government that an officer of the Commonwealth Service seconded to act as private secretary to a Minister, a member of the Federal Executive Council or to the Leader of the Opposition in the House of Representatives or the Senate, should, immediately on ceasing duty in any such capacity, be entitled to and should be accorded such status and salary as may be determined in order to ensure that no disability would be suffered by the officer by reason of his period of service as a private secretary. In making a determination the board is required to have regard to the office held by the officer prior to his being seconded for duty as a private secretary, and to the period and nature of his employment in that capacity.

3.   Yes, if necessary.
