Financial Management Act—
Pursuant to section 18A—Authorisation of Expenditure from the Treasurer’s Advance to ACT Planning and Land Authority, including a statement of reasons, dated 25 February 2009.

MS GALLAGHER: Mr Speaker, as required by the Financial Management Act, I table a copy of the authorisation in relation to the Treasurer’s Advance to the ACT Planning and Land Authority. Section 18 of the act allows the Treasurer to authorise expenditure from the Treasurer’s advance. Section 18A of the act requires that within three sitting days after the authorisation is given the Treasurer presents to the Legislative Assembly a copy of the authorisation, the statement of the reasons for giving it and a summary of the total expenditure authorised under section 18 for the financial year.
Under this instrument, $249,636.70 is provided to the ACT Planning and Land Authority to settle legal costs incurred by the rural leaseholders affected by the residential development in the Molonglo valley following the successful completion of an arbitration process. I commend the papers to the Assembly.
