AAP, via News, informs us that the Secretary of the Department of Transport and Regional Services is still claiming the Temporary Accommodation Allowance of $340 a week six years after taking the job here in Canberra and despite his stonking income which was $400,000 in 2004.
Mr Taylor bristled at the investigation.
“All of my remuneration arrangements are in accord with the prime minister’s determinations,” he said.
Apparently this is the only payment of its type in the Department. But is quite legit under the guidelines.
