Explanatory Statement: Determination 2013/19

Members of Parliament – Additional Salary for Parliamentary Office Holders


1.               The Remuneration Tribunal has inquired into and determined the remuneration and significantly related matters for office holders, as it is empowered to do by the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1973.


2.         In making this Determination the Tribunal has informed itself through consultation in accordance with established practice.


3.         Any retrospective application of this Determination is in accordance with subsection 12(2) of the Legislative Instruments Act 2003 as it does not affect the rights of a person (other than the Commonwealth or an authority of the Commonwealth) to that person’s disadvantage, nor does it impose any liability on such a person.




4.           Clause 1.1 specifies the Principal Determination (Number 13 of 2013) for the purposes of Part 1 of the Determination.


5.           Clause 1.2 changes the wording of clause 3.4.5 so that the end date of the provision contained in that clause is the date of the swearing in of a government following the 2013 election rather than the election date itself.


Authority: Sub-sections 7(1) and 7(4)

of the Remuneration Tribunal Act 1973
