MR BARR: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table three instruments issued under section 18. Advice on each instrument's direction and a statement of reasons must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given.
Section 18 of the FMA provides for the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's advance. I present three section 18 instruments today. The first instrument provides net cost of outputs appropriation to the Canberra Institute of Technology for $906,515 to cover cost pressures experienced by the CIT. The second instrument provides net cost of outputs appropriation to the Justice and Community Safety Directorate for $1.8 million to meet higher than expected demand for working with vulnerable people background checks. The third instrument provides expenses on behalf of the territory appropriation to the Community Services Directorate for $2 million to meet short-term cash requirements until the anticipated passing of Appropriation Bill 2013-2014 (No 2).
Additional details regarding all instruments are provided in the statement of reasons accompanying each instrument that I table today.
