Section 16(3) of the FMA requires that within three sitting days after the day the authorisation is given the Treasurer must present a copy of the direction and associated statement of reasons to the Assembly.

This instrument facilitates the transfer of $34,000 of net cost of outputs appropriation from the Territory and Municipal Services Directorate to the Chief Minister and Treasury Directorate for memberships to the Australian Local Government Association and the Council of Capital City Lord Mayors. This transfer is associated with changes to the administrative arrangements 2012 and is budget neutral. I commend this instrument to the Assembly.

Financial Management Act—instrument

Paper and statement by minister

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Community Services): For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 19B—Instrument varying appropriations related to the Natural Disaster Resilience Program—Justice and Community Safety Directorate, including a statement of reasons, dated 26 February 2013.

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

Leave granted.

MR BARR: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 19B of the act. A direction and a statement of reasons for this instrument must, as we are becoming familiar with, be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given. Section 19B of the act allows, by direction from the Treasurer, an appropriation to be authorised for any new commonwealth payments where no appropriation has been made in respect of those funds.

The territory received a $652,500 grant from the commonwealth government for the natural disaster resilience program, the NDRP. The increase in appropriation will enable the Justice and Community Safety Directorate to distribute these funds to approved project recipients in accordance with the terms and conditions of the memorandum of understanding or deed of grants. I commend this instrument to the Assembly.
