Explanatory memorandum

This memorandum is not part of the determination, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This determination, which is deemed to have come into force on 1 January 2013, increases the annuity payable to a person who has held the office of Prime Minister for a period or periods amounting in all to not less than 2 years and the annuity payable to the surviving spouse or partner of such a Prime Minister.

In the case of a former Prime Minister, the yearly rate that forms the basis for calculating the annuity is increased from $9,300 to $9,490, with the maximum annuity payable being increased from $46,500 to $47,450.

In the case of the surviving spouse or partner of a former Prime Minister, the yearly rate that forms the basis for calculating the annuity is increased from $4,650 to $4,745, with the maximum annuity payable being increased from $23,250 to $23,725.

This determination continues the past practice of adjusting the annuities by having regard to growth in the Consumers Price Index and in Prime Ministerial remuneration.

This determination expires on 31 December 2013.
