Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2012 Week 2 Hansard (21 February) . . Page.. 516..
... just for the record I do attend the Tuggeranong Community Council. I will continue to attend the Tuggeranong Community Council to support the good people of Tuggeranong. I am also very pleased to support Darryl Johnston in any activity that he puts forward to us.
I predicted then that the Liberals would be out there misrepresenting me and how right I was, Mr Speaker. It is really quite inappropriate for Mr Seselja to continue to misrepresent members of this committee.
Ms Gallagher presented the following paper:
Leader of the Opposition's office-Staffing arrangements-Administration of the Legislative Assembly (Members' Staff) Act 1989, dated February 2012.
Financial Management Act
Paper and statement by minister
MR BARR (Molonglo-Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation): For the information of members I present the following paper:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 16B-Instrument authorising the rollover of undisbursed appropriation of the Health Directorate, including a statement of reasons, dated 10 February 2012.
I ask leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
Mr Smyth interjecting-
MR BARR: I thank the shadow treasurer for his enthusiastic endorsement of section 16B statements.
Mr Smyth interjecting-
MR SPEAKER: Thank you. Let us just hear from Mr Barr.
MR BARR: Section 16B of the Financial Management Act allows for appropriations to be preserved from one financial year to the next through instruments signed by the Treasurer. As required by the act, I table a copy of a recent authorisation made to roll over an undisbursed appropriation from 2010-11 to 2011-12. Due to an administrative error within the Treasury Directorate, this instrument was not tabled last Thursday within the required three sitting days. I apologise to the Assembly for that. This package includes one instrument signed under section 16B. The appropriation being rolled over was not disbursed during the 2010-11 fiscal year and is required for the 2011-12 fiscal year for the completion of the projects identified in the instrument.
