(4) The amount of basic salary determined by the Tribunal is subject to a maximum cap, being 80% of the base salary payable to a Member of the House of Representatives. This is another governance provision to ensure the Tribunal does not have an unfettered power. (5) Definitions for this section: Defines CPI figure for Darwin, MHR parliamentary base salary and Public Sector for the purposes of new section 3A. Clause 5 Section 4 amended - Tribunal reports. Sub-sections 4(3) to (6) are omitted from the existing Act - these relate to the requirements for Tribunal reports. These provisions are replaced by a new section 4A. Clause 6. Section 4A - Report following inquiry. This proposed section replaces sub-section 4(3) to (6) of the existing Act in relation to the the requirements for Tribunal reports. The sub-sections of new section 4A provide as follows: (1) The Tribunal must prepare a report for each inquiry conducted, being inquiries under sections 3A and 4 into salaries and other entitlements respectively. (2) Makes it clear that if the Tribunal is conducting inquiries under sections 3A and 4 together, only one report is required. (3) Makes it clear that if the Tribunal is requested to inquire into and determine salary or other entitlement(s), the Tribunals report must include a determination, but in other circumstances, the Tribunals report may include only recommendations. This is the same provision as in the existing Act. (4) The Tribunal is required to give a copy of its report to the Administrator and to the Minister as soon as practicable after the report is made. This is the same provision as in the existing Act. 4|Page
