       (15)   The amount of travelling expenses payable to an entitled person for meals during travel on a day on which overnight accommodation is not required is:

9AA        Annual increase in rates

                Despite any other provision of these regulations, a rate prescribed by subregulation 9 (11), (12), (13) or (15) is increased, as applicable, in accordance with regulation 9AB, on each anniversary of 1 July 2006.

9AB        Calculation of increase

         (1)   In this regulation:

CPI number means the All Groups Consumer Price Index number (that is, the weighted average of the 8 Australian capital cities) published by the Australian Statistician.

earlier CPI number, for a financial year, means the CPI number for the last March quarter before the beginning of the financial year.

latest CPI number, for a financial year, means the CPI number for the last March quarter before the end of the financial year.

rate means a rate prescribed by subregulation 9 (11), (12), (13) or (15).

relevant financial year means a financial year beginning on or after 1 July 2006.

relevant rate, for a financial year, means the rate applying in the financial year.

         (2)   If, for a relevant financial year, the latest CPI number is greater than the earlier CPI number, a rate is taken to increase, on 1 July of the next financial year, in accordance with the following formula:

         (3)   If, apart from this subregulation, a rate prescribed by subregulation 9 (11) and increased under subregulation (2) is not a multiple of 0.1 cents, the rate is to be rounded to the nearest multiple of 0.1 cents and, if the amount to be rounded is 0.05 cents, rounded up.

         (4)   If, apart from this subregulation, a rate prescribed by subregulation 9 (12), (13) or (15) and increased under subregulation (2) is not a multiple of 10 cents, the rate is to be rounded to the nearest multiple of 10 cents and, if the amount to be rounded is 5 cents, rounded up.

         (5)   If, at any time, whether before or after the commencement of this regulation, the Australian Statistician publishes for a particular March quarter a CPI number in substitution for a CPI number previously published by the Australian Statistician for the quarter, the publication of the later CPI number is to be disregarded for this regulation.

         (6)   However, if, at any time, whether before or after the commencement of this regulation, the Australian Statistician changes the reference base for the Consumer Price Index, then, in applying this regulation after the change is made, regard is to be had only to numbers published in terms of the new reference base.

9AC        Travelling expenses under section 170B of the Act — interpretation

         (1)   In this regulation and regulations 9AD, 9AE and 9AF:

application, in relation to an entitled person, means an application in accordance with subsection 170B (5) or 196ZO (5) of the Act for the payment of travelling expenses.

         (2)   In this regulation and regulations 9AD, 9AE, 9AF, 9AG and 9AH:

entitled person means an applicant or an attendant who is entitled to be paid travelling expenses under section 170B or 196ZO of the Act.

9AD        Travelling expenses under section 170B or 196ZO of the Act — up to $500

                The total amount, not exceeding $500, of an entitled person’s travelling expenses is payable to the person if:

                (a)    he or she applies to the Commission for payment of travelling expenses up to $500 (whether the application is made before or after travel); and

               (b)    the application is accompanied by written evidence of his or her travelling expenses.

9AE        Travelling expenses under section 170B or 196ZO of the Act — over $500

         (1)   Subregulation (2) applies if:

                (a)    an entitled person applies to the Commission for payment of travelling expenses over $500 (whether the application is made before or after travel); and

               (b)    the person’s application is accompanied by written evidence of his or her travelling expenses.

         (2)   The amount payable to the person, as soon as practicable after receipt of the application by the Commission, is the lesser of:

                (a)    the amount of his or her travelling expenses; and

               (b)    the amount calculated by the Commission, in accordance with regulations 9, 9AM and 9AN, as the amount of travelling expenses payable to the person.

         (3)   The Commission must notify an entitled person of a decision it makes under subregulation (2) as soon as practicable after the Commission receives that person’s application.

9AF         Travelling expenses under section 170B or 196ZO of the Act — request for written evidence

         (1)   Subregulation (2) applies if:

                (a)    not later than 6 months after an entitled person completes his or her travel, the Commission requests that person to give to the Commission written evidence of his or her travelling expenses; and

               (b)    the person does not give the Commission the written evidence within 3 months after the request was made.

         (2)   The Commission may:

                (a)    if the person has not been paid travelling expenses in advance under section 170C or 196ZP of the Act — refuse to authorise the payment of travelling expenses; or

               (b)    if the person has been paid travelling expenses in advance under section 170C or 196ZP of the Act — request the person to repay to the Commonwealth the amount of the advance.

Note   Subsections 170C (2) and 196ZP (2) of the Act provide that a person in receipt of an advance for travelling expenses under subsection 170C (1) or 196ZP (1) of the Act, as the case requires, is liable to repay to the Commonwealth all or any part of the advance that represents an amount for which travelling expenses were not incurred.

         (3)   The Commission must notify an entitled person of a decision it makes under subregulation (2) as soon as practicable after the Commission receives that person’s application.

9AG        Reconsideration of decisions — initiated by the Commission

                If the Commission is satisfied that information given to the Commission when it made a decision under regulation 9, 9AD or 9AE is false or misleading in a relevant detail, the Commission may, in its discretion:

                (a)    reconsider the decision; and

               (b)    if it decides that an amount of travelling expenses has been paid that would not have been paid but for the false or misleading statement or representation — request the entitled person to repay to the Commonwealth an amount equal to that amount.

Note 1   The effect of section 205 of the Act is that if a person is paid a pension, allowance or other pecuniary benefit under the Act because of a false statement or representation to the Commission by that person, procedures are prescribed enabling the Commission to recover from that person an amount equal to the amount of the pension, allowance or other pecuniary benefit paid.

Note 2   The effect of section 208 of the Act is that if a person is paid a pension, allowance or other pecuniary benefit under the Act because of a false or misleading statement to the Commission by that person, the person is guilty of an offence that is punishable, on conviction, by a fine or imprisonment or both.

9AH        Reconsideration of decisions — initiated by entitled persons

         (1)   An entitled person who is dissatisfied with a decision of the Commission under regulation 9, 9AE or 9AF may request the Commission to reconsider the decision.

         (2)   A request for reconsideration of a decision must:

                (a)    be in writing; and

               (b)    set out the grounds on which the request is made; and

                (c)    be made to the Commission within 3 months after the day on which the person seeking reconsideration was notified of the decision.

         (3)   If the Commission has delegated its powers under this regulation to the person who made a decision under reconsideration, that person must not reconsider the decision.

9AI          Commission’s duty if a request for reconsideration made

         (1)   If the Commission receives a request under regulation 9AH, the Commission must affirm the decision or set it aside:

                (a)    within 3 months after receipt of the request; or

               (b)    within such longer period as is agreed in writing by the person who made the request.

         (2)   If the Commission sets aside a decision first made under regulation 9, 9AE or 9AF, it must make a decision in place of the decision set aside.

9AJ         Commission must make written record of reconsidered decision and reasons

         (1)   When the Commission reconsiders a decision referred to in regulation 9AG or 9AH, it must make a written record of the reconsidered decision.

         (2)   The written record must include a statement that:

                (a)    sets out the Commission’s findings on relevant questions of fact; and

               (b)    refers to the evidence or other material on which those findings are based; and

                (c)    provides reasons for the Commission’s decision.

9AK        Written record to be given to person who requested reconsideration

                As soon as practicable after the Commission reconsiders a decision referred to in regulation 9AG or 9AH, it must give to the person who requested reconsideration of the decision a copy of the written record referred to in regulation 9AJ.

9AL         Review by Administrative Appeals Tribunal

         (1)   Application under the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 may be made to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for a review of a decision of the Commission under regulation 9AG or 9AI.

         (2)   An application under subregulation (1) must be made within 3 months after the day on which the person seeking review was notified of the Commission’s decision.

9AM        Travelling expenses under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act to 1 destination for 2 or more purposes

                Despite regulations 9, 9AD and 9AE, if a person who is entitled to be paid travelling expenses under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act travels to 1 destination for 2 or more purposes referred to in section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act, the amount of travelling expenses that that person is entitled to be paid is the greatest amount payable under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act for 1 of those purposes.

Note   For example, a person who travels to a medical practice to obtain relevant documentary medical evidence as well as for treatment will only be paid the greatest amount of travelling expenses payable under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act for that travel.

9AN        Travelling expenses under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act to more than 1 location within the same town or city

                Despite regulations 9, 9AD and 9AE, if a person who is entitled to be paid travelling expenses under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act travels to more than 1 location in the same city or town for a purpose or purposes referred to in section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act, the amount of travelling expenses that that person is entitled to be paid is:

                (a)    the greatest amount payable under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act for travel to the city or town; and

               (b)    the greatest amount payable under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act for travel between each location within that city or town.

Note   For example, a person who travels to a medical practice in a city for treatment, and then goes to another location in the same city for a medical examination before returning home, will only be paid once for the return travel to the city, and once for the travel from the medical practice to the other location (being the greatest amount of travelling expenses payable under section 110, 132, 170B or 196ZO of the Act for that travel).
