Removal of person from public gallery
MR SPEAKER: Members may recall that I indicated to Mr Cornwell that I would keep the house informed as to developments about the person who was sent from the Assembly a short time ago. I wish to inform members that, following the removal of a person from the public gallery on Tuesday during question time for disorderly conduct, I have ordered that the person concerned not be readmitted to the precincts as that person has disturbed Assembly proceedings on three occasions.
I have instructed that she not be readmitted until she signs a written undertaking to abide by the relevant standing orders and not create disorder in the precincts. The person attempted to enter the precincts today, but was refused entry. In the event that the person attempts to contact members or their staff for entry, I ask that they abide by my order. For these purposes, details of the name of the person can be obtained from the serjeant-at-arms or the principal attendant.

Paper and statement by minister
MR QUINLAN (Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Business and Tourism, and Minister for Sport, Racing and Gaming): Mr Speaker, I present the following paper:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 18-Statement of Authorisation of Expenditure in 2002-2003, including the Statement of Reasons for Expenditure against the Treasurer's Advance.
I ask for leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
MR QUINLAN: Mr Speaker, as required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I have tabled a copy of authorisations of expenditure under section 18 of the act and a statement of the reasons relating to the expenditure. Section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer's Advance. The authorisation may provide for expenditure in excess of an amount already specified and specifically appropriated or an expenditure for which there is no appropriation.
