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

179. Subsection (1) provides the Manager‑General may establish Departments of Corporation and appoint persons to administer them (known as Ministers of Corporation, or Ministers). They must be members of the Proprietary Council.

180. Subsection (2) provides a Minister ceases to hold office upon assumption of the Government (to ensure there is a person who is not a Minister who is responsible for the administration of Government), or if they cease to be a legislative director or a person qualified for appointment as a director under subsection (3) (to ensure the principle of responsible government), or if the Minister is receiving a salary but the salary ceases to be an approved benefit (this is to ensure that there is appropriate oversight of ministerial remuneration through the approved benefit system).

181. Subsection (3) provides for the appointment of occupiers of director places (category D) in registration table 2 in subsection 61(2). Item 2.1.d.0.y is a director place for the purposes of appointment under this subsection (see note 176(D)(ii)). Subsection (4) provides the appointment as a director shall cease if the director ceases to be a Minister, becomes a director under another provision, or if 90 days have elapsed since appointment or return of writs for a general election. This is to allow for the appointment of directors persons who are not legislative directors, but who are candidates or persons who just ceased to be legislative directors, for the purpose of appointment as Ministers.
