MS GALLAGHER (continuing):

Health has received $768,000 from the commonwealth, which includes $706,000 for the health services national partnership program. The department of education has received $6.827 million from the commonwealth, which includes $5.782 million for the nation building and jobs program and $925,000 for the literacy and numeracy program.

The Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services has received $21,000 from the commonwealth for the concessions for pensioners national partnership. Housing ACT has received $1 million for the place to call home homelessness national partnership, and the Department of Treasury has received $650,000 for the standard business reporting program NPP.

The funds received under these programs have been appropriated to several agencies as detailed in the instrument.

Section 19B of the act allows for an appropriation to be authorised for any new commonwealth payments where no appropriation has been made in respect of those funds, by my direction. This package includes five instruments authorised under section 19B of the act. ACT Health has received $9.895 million of commonwealth funding for the essential vaccines and elective surgery waiting lists reduction programs. The Canberra Institute of Technology has received $522,000 from the commonwealth for the TAFE fee waiver for childcare qualification program. The Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water has received $175,000 from the commonwealth for the water for the future program. The Department of Education and Training has received $331,000 for the quality on the job workplace learning program, and the territory has received $658,000 for the natural disaster resilience and the natural disaster mitigation programs.

The funds received under these programs have been appropriated to several agencies as detailed in the instrument.

Finally, section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. I table a section 18 instrument relating to the commonwealth funding received under the natural disaster mitigation program that is being passed to the Department of Territory and Municipal Services.

Additional detail regarding these instruments is provided in the statement of reasons accompanying each instrument and I commend the instruments to the Assembly.
