MS GALLAGHER (continuing):

I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table copies of the authorisations in relation to the Treasurer's advance to the Chief Minister's Department. Section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise the expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. Section 18A of the act requires that, within three sitting days after the day the authorisation is given, the Treasurer present to the Legislative Assembly a copy of the authorisation, a statement of the reasons for giving it and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.

Under this instrument $300,000 was provided to Chief Minister's Department to make a donation on behalf of the ACT community towards the recovery efforts for the Victorian bushfires.
