MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act I table a number of instruments issued under sections 14, 16A, 17 and 19B of the act. Advice on each instrument’s direction and a statement of reasons must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given.
Section 14 of the act, “Transfer of funds between appropriations”, allows for the transfer of funds between appropriations as endorsed by me and another minister. The instrument transfers $2.359 million of the Health Directorate’s controlled capital injection appropriation to the net cost of outputs appropriation. This transfer relates to the flexible funding pool under the National Health and Hospital Reform National Partnership Agreement, which was originally appropriated as capital injection.
