Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2006 Week 4 Hansard (2 May) . . Page.. 1051..

Leave granted.

MR STANHOPE: Mr Speaker, as required by the Financial Management Act, I have tabled two instruments issued under section 16 of the act. The direction and the associated statement of reasons for the instruments must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days of being given.

Section 16 instruments permit agencies to operate against valid appropriations, reflecting the new ministerial responsibilities. The first transfer of appropriations under section 16 of the FMA will enable ACT Health to continue to support the Health Complaints Commissioner to function for the remainder of 2005-06 by adjusting the 2005-06 budgets of the Department of Justice and Community Safety and ACT Health.

The second transfer of appropriations under section 16 transfers the gas inspector function from ACT WorkCover to the ACT Planning and Land Authority to consolidate the building and gas inspection function in the ACT government. The details of the two instruments can be found within the tabled package. I commend the papers to the Assembly.
