Industry chiefs on Australia’s coronavirus commission are being paid $2000 a day.
One of the five commissioners is choosing not to be paid, three are working two days a week, and another just one day, a Senate inquiry has been told.
Commission chairman Nev Power will receive $500,000 over six months to cover travel and accommodation costs.
The commission will cost about $3 million a year and is set up for an initial six months.
It was established in mid-March to provide the prime minister with advice on all non-health aspects of the pandemic.
