Relevant note from the Explanatory Memorandum[edit | edit source]

156. Subsection (1), based on the section 48 of the Australian Constitution, makes provision for the allowances of members of Houses of the Parliament. Subsection (2) provides that members serve on an honorary basis unless the benefit is also an approved benefit falling in item 1 of the table in subsection 90(3). In order to be an approved benefit under that item it has to be approved by an independent remuneration authority (see the note on section 90).
