Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 11 Hansard (18 October) . . Page.. 4546..

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18A—Authorisation of Expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance to Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate, including a statement of reasons, dated 22 September 2011.

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

Leave granted.

MR BARR: I thank members for that enthusiastic granting of leave. As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table a copy of an authorisation for a Treasurer's advance provided to the Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate.

Section 18 of the act provides for the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. Section 18A of that act requires that, within three sitting days after such authorisation is given, the Treasurer must present to the Assembly a copy of the authorisation instrument and a statement of reasons for giving it, and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.

This instrument provides an increase of $50,000 in net cost of outputs appropriation for the Chief Minister and Cabinet Directorate to make a donation on behalf of the ACT community to the United Nations Children's Fund—UNICEF—for relief work in drought-affected east Africa. I commend the paper to the Assembly.
