Media release: Members' additional entitlements 2020

The Auditor-General for New South Wales, Margaret Crawford, released a report today reviewing the additional entitlements claimed by Members of the New South Wales Parliament (Members) under the Parliamentary Remuneration Tribunal’s Determination (the Determination).

The Auditor-General found three material instances of Member non-compliance with the Determination. The Department of Parliamentary Services has subsequently requested the three Members repay amounts incorrectly claimed.

The report also acknowledges that the Department has worked with the Tribunal to address two of the three recommendations made in the 2019 Auditor-General’s review. These are now reflected in the 2020 Determination. The Department expects to address the third recommendation in the 2021 Determination.
