Financial Management Act—instrument

Paper and statement by minister

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18A—Authorisation of Expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance to the Department of Justice and Community Safety, including a statement of reasons, dated 23 November 2009.

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 a copy of the authorisation in relation to the Treasurer's advance to the Department of Justice and Community Safety. Section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise 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 must present to the Legislative Assembly a copy of the authorisation and a statement of the reasons for giving it, and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.

This instrument provides funding of $120,000 to JACS for the Office of the Work Safety Commissioner to commence the work safety fund. This is required to ensure that a comparable level of funding to court-imposed fines under the Work Safety Act 2008 will be used by the Work Safety Commissioner to promote better work safety practices. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
