Paper

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 13-Appropriation Bill 2002-2003 (No 3)-Supplementary Budget Papers 2002-2003 Appropriation-Addendum.

Appropriation Bill 2003-2004

[Cognate report:

Estimates 2002-2003-Select Committee

Report-government response]

Debate resumed from 8 May 2003.

Detail stage

MR DEPUTY SPEAKER: Is it the wish of the Assembly to debate this order of the day concurrently with the government's response to the report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2003-2004 on the Appropriation Bill 2003-04? There being no objection, that course will be followed. I remind members that in debating order of the day No 2, executive business, they may also address their remarks to the relevant parts of the government's response to the report of the Select Committee on Estimates 2003-2004 on the Appropriation Bill 2003-2004.

Standing order 180 sets down the order in which this bill will be considered, that is, in the detail stage:

...any schedule expressing the services for which the appropriation is to be made shall be considered before the clauses and, unless the Assembly otherwise orders, the schedules shall be considered by proposed expenditures in the order in which they are shown.

With the concurrence of the Assembly, it is proposed that the Assembly consider schedule 1 by each part, consisting of net cost of outputs, capital injection, and payments on behalf of the territory, then the clauses prior to schedule 2 and the title.

Schedule 1-Appropriations.

Proposed expenditure-part 1.1-Legislative Assembly Secretariat, $4,607,000 (net cost of outputs), $436,000 (capital injection) and $3,803,000 (payments on behalf of the territory), totalling $8,846,000.

MR SMYTH

(Leader of the Opposition) (11.26): Mr Deputy Speaker, I would like to confirm that the opposition will be passing the budget when the debate is concluded, but we will look at and make an example of one or two things in the budget that we think should not be there. I will get to those when they turn up in the consideration of the Chief Minister's Department and JACS.
