Ms Burch: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

Details of appropriation rollover instruments prepared under the Financial Management ACT 1996 are tabled by the Treasurer from time to time. The Treasurer tables information on funds allocated from the Treasurer's advance in accordance with the Financial Management Act 1996. Details of programs requiring additional funding are disclosed in the Budget Papers in the event additional funding is provided (as occurred in the 2010-11 Budget). In addition, agency annual financial statements and management, discussion and analysis (M,D and A) explain significant variances between budgeted appropriation and appropriation drawn, budgeted expenditure and actual expenditure. Agency Statements of Performance include actual Government Payment for Outputs and cost by output, together with variance explanations where there is a material variance from budget. Annual Reports for 2009-10, which include agency financial statements, M,D and A and statement of performance, will be tabled shortly in accordance with established procedures.
