WESTERN AUSTRALIA SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES ACT 1975
VARIATION OF DETERMINATION OF THE SALARIES AND ALLOWANCES TRIBUNAL ON REMUNERATION OF MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT

Pursuant to Section 6(1) (a) (ab) and (b)

September 2008

This determination pursuant to Section 6(1) (a) (ab) and (b) of the Salaries and Allowances Act 1975, varies the Charter Transport Allowance in Part 4, Section 2.2 of the determination of 15 September 2008 to deal with some unintended consequences of alterations made to the Tribunal’s determination of 15 August 2008.

The purpose of this variation is to ensure that Members of Parliament have a sufficient Charter Transport Allowance to enable them to serve and represent their electorates properly. This determination only affects that part of the determination of 15 September 2008 related to the Charter Transport Allowance.

The Tribunal has already foreshadowed its intention to undertake a further statutory review with respect to the electorate and other allowances payable to Members of Parliament in the near future. In so doing, the Tribunal will consult with Members of Parliament.

This variation to the Tribunal’s determination of 15 September 2008 will now issue.

PART 4: TRAVELLING ALLOWANCE

SECTION 2: CHARTER TRANSPORT ALLOWANCE

2.2    Members representing the under mentioned electorates shall, except where scheduled airlines are operating at reasonably convenient times, be entitled at Government cost to use charter transport within or for the service of their electorates (within Western Australia) and to undertake parliamentary duties, but such cost shall not exceed the amounts specified hereunder for each financial year, less any expenditure incurred at the request of the Member in seeking a variation to the standard applied in Section 4 of Part 3, with effect from 1 July 2008.
