Financial Management Act—instrument

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Treasurer, Minister for Health, Minister for Community Services and Minister for Women): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 14—Instrument directing a transfer of funds from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to the Chief Minister's Department, including a statement of reasons, dated 13 May 2009.

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

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: Madam Assistant Speaker, as required by the Financial Management Act, I table this instrument under section 14 of that act. Section 14 of the act, "Transfer of funds between appropriations", allows the executive to direct the transfer of funds between appropriations. Section 14(4) of the act requires that within three sitting days after a direction is given the Treasurer must present to the Legislative Assembly a copy of the direction and a statement of reasons giving that authorisation.

This instrument transfers $50,000 of departmental government payment for output from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to the departmental government payment for output for the Chief Minister's Department. The transfer is to fund the cost of the shop in Canberra campaign which was delivered by the Chief Minister's Department. That campaign was developed and delivered during late March and early April to encourage our community to shop locally and stay in the ACT over the Easter period. I commend the instrument to the Assembly.
