By funding the services and infrastructure Canberrans deserve and expect, by continuing to lay the foundations for the long-term growth of our economy, and by ensuring we have a happy and healthy community, we are delivering for Canberrans today and securing a better future for our city.

I commend the Budget to the Assembly.

Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2016-2017

Mr Barr, pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement, a Human Rights Act compatibility statement and the following supplementary paper:

Budget 2016-2017—Financial Management Act, pursuant to sections 20AA and 20AC—Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2016-2017—Statement of Reasons—Departure from Recommended Appropriations.

Title read by Clerk.

MR BARR (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Urban Renewal) (3.27): I move:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

This bill is the mechanism for the appropriation of moneys for the 2016-17 financial year for the Office of the Legislative Assembly and officers of the Assembly, the Auditor-General and the Electoral Commissioner. The bill provides for appropriations for the Auditor-General, the Electoral Commissioner, and the Office of the Legislative Assembly in relation to controlled recurrent payments, capital injections and payments to be made on behalf of the territory.

Section 20 of the Financial Management Act requires that a statement of reasons be tabled after the introduction of the Office of the Legislative Assembly Appropriation Bill should the government depart from the Speaker's recommended appropriation. I table that statement now, and commend the appropriation to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Mr Hanson) adjourned to the next sitting.

Safer Families Levy Bill 2016

Mr Barr, pursuant to notice, presented the bill, its explanatory statement and a Human Rights Act compatibility statement.

Title read by Clerk.
