Table B: Not applicable.

Under the Privacy Act 1988 an individual’s remuneration information is personal information. For the purposes of disclosure, where an individual could reasonably be identified (for example, where there is only one or a small number of people in a salary range) an individual is required to provide consent for their remuneration to be published.

Information about the Secretary’s remuneration can found on the Remuneration Tribunal website.
