This is a straightforward bill, an appropriation for the Office of the Legislative Assembly. It provides for the appropriation of additional funds in the current fiscal year totalling $711,000. The funding comprises $429,000 in additional net controlled recurrent payments and $282,000 in additional payments on behalf of the Territory appropriations. These are for employee expenses for the Office of the Legislative Assembly and the Officers of the Assembly, the Integrity Commissioner, the Auditor-General and the Electoral Commissioner, again to meet the parameters of the government’s enterprise bargaining offer. I commend the bill to the Assembly.

Debate (on motion by Ms Lee) adjourned to the next sitting.

MR BARR (Kurrajong—Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Climate Action, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism) (4.59), by leave:
I move:

That, notwithstanding the provisions of the resolution of the Assembly of 2 December 2020, as amended, that established general purpose standing committees, the Appropriation Bill 2022-2023 (No 2) and the Appropriation (Office of the Legislative Assembly) Bill 2022-2023 (No 2) be referred to the Standing Committee on Public Accounts to decide whether or not to undertake an inquiry, and, if they decide to inquire, report by 21 March 2023.

This committee reporting date will allow almost six weeks for the committee to inquire into the bills, if they choose, consistent with past practice, while ensuring the timely passing of the supplementary appropriation to support government operations.

Debate (on motion by Ms Lee) adjourned to the next sitting.
