Financial Management Act
Paper and statement by minister
MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism, Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming and Minister for Police, Emergency Services and Corrections): Mr Speaker, for the information of members, I present the following paper:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 19B, instrument of authorisation of expenditure, dated 26 March 2002, together with a statement of reasons.
I ask for leave to make a statement.
MR QUINLAN: As required by the Financial Management Act of 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 19B of the act and a statement of the reasons for the variation of funds between appropriations by directions of the executive. Section 19B of the Financial Management Act 1996 allows for an appropriation to be authorised for any commonwealth specific purpose payments where no appropriation has been made in respect of those funds by direction of the Treasurer.
The instrument authorises the on-passing of a specific purpose payment for the increased grant applied to new home purchasers under the first home owners grant scheme. The grant is for $2.7 million. 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. I commend these papers to the Assembly.
