Expense disclosures

3 November 2010

The Speaker of the House, Dr The Rt Hon Lockwood Smith, has released the schedule of expense disclosures for members of Parliament in its original format, including travel by members funded from the entitlement deducted from their salaries.

The Speaker said he has released the information because of confusion created by the decision of some party leaders to release individual party figures.

“I will use the original format in the future, but will now be considering more comprehensively the relationship between entitlements in the Speaker’s Directions and remuneration for members of Parliament determined by the Remuneration Authority,” he said.
