Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2001 Week 10 Hansard (28 August) . . Page.. 3410..
Mr Hargreaves: I take a point of order, Mr Speaker. I am not sitting in the glorious chair. I know Mr Moore has always wanted to, and I congratulate him for the overthrow.
MR SPEAKER: Order! I find myself faced with very few members of the Assembly, but we accept that, and I thank you, Mr Hargreaves, for moving up to the Leader of the Opposition's chair. Mr Moore, proceed, please.
MR MOORE: Mr Speaker, I think Mr Kaine may not have realised, so I will reiterate that I did say that I did this on behalf of the Chief Minister. Although I do only have a couple of days left to make my move, I am intending to do it any time now. I am having trouble getting the numbers. I have got one so far, Mr Kaine. If you will go with me, that will give me two.
Financial Management Act-Instrument of transfer
Paper and statement by minister
MR MOORE (Minister for Health, Housing and Community Services): On behalf of Mr Humphries, I present the following paper for the information of members:
Financial Management Act-An instrument of transfer issued and a statement of reasons for giving it pursuant to section 14.
I ask for leave to have the tabling statement incorporated in Hansard.
The statement read as follows:
Mr Speaker, as required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table:
An instrument issued under Section 14 of the Act and a statement of the reasons for the transfer of funds between appropriations by direction of the Executive.
Transfers under the Financial Management Act 1996 allow for changes to appropriations throughout the year within the Appropriation limit passed by the Assembly.
This instrument relates to the 2001-02 financial year and is tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days of the authorisation as required by the Act.
The instrument provides for the transfer of $123,000. from the Chief Minister's Department to the Department of Treasury.
This appropriation was originally provided to Chief Minister's Department for an executive salary. The funds have been transferred from Chief Minister's Department to the Department of Treasury to enhance the executive capability of the Department of Treasury.
Mr Speaker, I commend these papers to the Assembly.
