MR BARR: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996 I table a copy of three authorisations for Treasurer's advance provided to the Justice and Community Safety Directorate and the Legal Aid Commission.

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

This package I am tabling this afternoon includes three instruments authorised under section 18 of the act to meet expenses related to the board of inquiry into the conviction of Mr Eastman, including $1.868 million in net cost of outputs for the Justice and Community Safety Directorate, $497,174 in net cost of outputs for the Legal Aid Commission and $149,000 in capital injection for the Justice and Community Safety Directorate. I commend these papers to the Assembly.
