Chief Minister's Charitable Fund—Hands Across Canberra

MR WALL: Chief Minister, last month you announced that your government will provide seed funding to Hands Across Canberra for the Chief Minister's Charitable Fund. Under what legislation will the payments to Hands Across Canberra or the fund be made?

MR BARR: The Financial Management Act.

MR WALL: Chief Minister, will the ACT government be paying Hands Across Canberra for the administration of the fund? If so, how much has been, or will be, factored in for the administration of the fund? Have any payments been made so far?

MR BARR: Yes, a modest amount of funding of $100,000 has been allocated to set up the fund. Ongoing administration costs will be kept to a minimum in line with standards for similar funds around the nation.

MR COE: Chief Minister, how do you determine what the cost to manage this fund is going to be? Will those funds be drawn from the Chief Minister's Charitable Fund, or will it be a separate grant or appropriation? What other guidelines will exist?

MR BARR: The answers to all of those question are available as part of the deed of agreement.

Budget—community input

MS CHEYNE: My question is to the Chief Minister. Chief Minister, this morning the Assembly passed the appropriations bill for the 2018-19 budget. When will work commence for the 2019 budget, and how can Canberrans get involved?

MR BARR: Thank you, Ms Cheyne. I was completing an answer to the previous question, advising the Leader of Opposition that he was not aware of what his colleagues in estimates had in fact asked for.
