Financial Management Act

Papers and statement by minister

MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism, Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming, and Acting Minister for Planning): For the information of members I present the following papers:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18-Statement of Authorisation of Expenditure against the Treasurer's Advance, including a statement of reasons, dated 8 June, 10 June and 22 June 2004.

I seek leave to make a statement.

Leave granted.

MR QUINLAN: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 18 of the Act. Issuance of Treasurer's Advance under the Financial Management Act 1996 allows for unforeseen expenditure which is in excess of the amount specifically appropriated for expenditure of that kind when the need for the expenditure could not reasonably have been foreseen at the time of presentation to the Legislative Assembly of the bill for the first Appropriation Act relating to the financial year in which the expenditure is to happen. Amendments to the Financial Management Act 1996 require the details of all expenditure authorised under section 18 to be tabled in the Assembly within three days of the signing of the authorisation-my amendment, I might add.

These instruments indicate the total funding provided over the year. The total expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance for the year amounted to $1,655,783. All three instruments relate to the finalisation of costs associated with the contractual dispute relating to IT services provided for the development of the AIMS database for WorkCover. Mr Speaker, I commend these papers to the Assembly.

Land Development Agency

Paper and statement by minister

MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism, Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming, and Acting Minister for Planning): For the information of members I present the following paper:

Planning and Land Act, pursuant to section 48-Direction-Payment of dividend by the Land Development Agency to the Department of Treasury, dated 24 June 2004.

I seek leave to make a statement.
