Financial management instruments
Papers 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): For the information of members, I present the following papers:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 14-Instruments (2) directing a transfer of funds between appropriations, including statements of reasons.
I ask for leave to make a short statement.
MR QUINLAN: Mr Speaker, I have tabled these instruments issued under section 14 of the Financial Management Act and statements for the reasons for the transfer of funds between appropriations by direction of the executive.
The first instrument relates to the 2001-02 financial year. Through an administrative oversight, the tabling of the original instrument of the previous government in August of last year reflected only one signature rather than the required two. The instrument being tabled today reflects a retrospective correction. The Assembly should note that the only change to the original instrument is in its authorisation. No monetary amounts were affected.
