Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 7 Hansard (16 June) . . Page.. 2333..
MS GALLAGHER (continuing):
2009 UCI mountain bike and trials world championship. Section 18 of the act provides for the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. Section 18A of the act requires that within three sitting days after the day such authorisation is given, the Treasurer must present to the Legislative Assembly a copy of the authorisation instrument, a statement of the reasons for giving it and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.
Due to an administrative oversight within Treasury, this instrument is being tabled on the fourth sitting day since it was signed, and I apologise to members for this oversight.
This instrument provides $600,000 to the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to undertake immediate work required to stage the world championships at Stromlo Forest Park during September 2009. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
