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

183. Subsection (1), based on the section 66 of the Australian Constitution, provides the Parliament may appropriate money for the salaries of Ministers. This provides the Parliament with oversight over ministerial remuneration.

184. Subsection (2) provides that Ministers serve on an honorary basis unless an amount has been appropriated under subsection (1) and the salary is an approved benefit. This subsection clarifies the situation in relation to the engagement of Ministers where no amount has been appropriated with the approval of the Parliament and falls within the approved benefits regime.
