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 16 June 2010.

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

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act, I table an instrument issued under section 17 of the act. The direction and a 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 appropriation for any increase in existing commonwealth payments by direction of the Treasurer. The Department of Treasury has received $1.113 million in additional funding from the commonwealth for the first-home owners boost.

This increase in funding is due to the extension of the scheme by the commonwealth on 31 December 2009. This extension was announced after the release of the ACT's 2009-10 budget. The increase in appropriation is required to fund the additional first-home owner boost payments being made by the Department of Treasury.

I commend the instrument to the Assembly.
