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 17—Instrument varying appropriations relating to Commonwealth funding to the Department of Treasury, including a statement of reasons, dated 17 March 2010.

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

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 17 of the act. The direction and statement of reasons for this instrument must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given.

Section 17 of the act enables variations to appropriations for any increase in existing commonwealth payments by direction of the Treasurer. The Department of Treasury has received $2.121 million in additional funding from the commonwealth for the first homeowner boost.

This increase in funding is due to the extension of the scheme by the commonwealth to 31 December 2009. This extension was announced after the release of the budget. The increase in the appropriation is required to fund the additional first homeowner boost payments being made by the Department of Treasury. I commend the instrument to the Assembly.

Paper and statement by minister

MS BURCH (Brindabella—Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Children and Young People, Minister for Ageing, Minister for Multicultural Affairs and Minister for Women): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

ACT Women's Plan 2010-2015—An ACT Government strategic framework to improve the status and lives of women and girls, prepared by the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services.

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

Leave granted.
