Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act, I table a number of instruments issued under sections 16, 16B, 17 and 18 of the act. Advice on each instrument's direction and a statement of reasons must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given.

Sections 16(1) and (2) of the act allow the Treasurer to authorise the transfer of appropriation for a service or a function to another entity following a change in responsibility for that service or function. This package includes four instruments signed under section 16: $12.962 million of appropriation relating to the Property Group has been transferred from the Department of Territory and Municipal Services to the Department of Land and Property Services, consistent with the administrative arrangements announced on 1 December 2009.

This transfer was facilitated through two instruments: $24,000 of appropriation required for the purchase of services from Canberra Connect has been transferred from TAMS to the Department of Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water; and $113,000 has been transferred from the Department of Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water to TAMS with an animal welfare officer position.

Section 16B of the Financial Management Act, rollover of undisbursed appropriations, allows for appropriations to be preserved from one financial year to the next, as outlined in instruments signed by me. This package includes three instruments signed under section 16B. The appropriation being rolled over was not disbursed during 2008-09 and is still required in 2009-10.
