ACT Legislative Assembly

Travel reporting and former entitlements

Travel reporting

The ACT Remuneration Tribunal determines the entitlements of members travelling on “Assembly business” as well as travel by minsters or the Speaker on “official business” as office holders.

In late 2009, following consultation with the Standing Committee on Administration and Procedure, the Speaker determined that the Assembly’s website should be updated twice each year to show all travel on Assembly or official business undertaken by non-executive members and their staff during the current Assembly, and that a link to all study travel reports submitted by non-executive members is also included on the website.

Twice yearly Ministerial travel reports were also previously provided to the Office of the Legislative Assembly by the ACT Executive for publication on the website. The final period of reporting published in this format was the ‘July to December 2017’ period. Following the implementation of the Freedom of Information Act 2016, information publically reported from 1 January 2018 includes both Ministerial and Ministerial staff travel, and is available on the ACT Government Open Access website.

Travel on Assembly business includes:

  • travel as part of service on an Assembly committee;
  • travel in accordance with non-executive members’ entitlement, as determined by the Remuneration Tribunal, for the purposes of studies and investigations;
  • travel as a representative of the Assembly branch of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association or as an office holder of the Association; and
  • travel as a representative of the Assembly as determined by the Speaker.

Travel on official business as an office holder includes ministerial travel and attendance by the Speaker at the annual Presiding Officers and Clerks Conference and other travel related to the functions of the office of Speaker.
