66.1 This section will be deleted because:
▸    It refers to the Queen, who is to be removed; and
▸    Otherwise the section was transitional, merely setting an upper limit on the cost of Ministerial salaries until Parliament determined otherwise.
66.2 The section need not be replaced. Parliament may continue to make laws for the remuneration and allowances of Ministers under s.51(xxxix) and s.62A(iii).
