In response to the resolution of the Assembly, I have presented that information.

Financial Management Act—instrument

Paper and statement by minister

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Ms Gallagher, do you have a paper to present? There is some confusion.

MS GALLAGHER (Molonglo—Treasurer, Minister for Health, Minister for Community Services and Minister for Women): I do have a paper to present. For the information of members, I present the following paper:

Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 19B—Instrument varying appropriations related to the Nation Building and Jobs Plan—Housing ACT and the Department of Education and Training, including a statement of reasons dated 16 June 2009.

I seek leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.

Leave granted.

MS GALLAGHER: As required by the Financial Management Act, I table an instrument issued under section 19B of the act. The direction and a statement of reasons for the above instruments must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given. Section 19B of the Financial Management Act 1996 allows for an appropriation to be authorised for any new commonwealth grants where no appropriation has been made in respect of those funds, by my direction.

The territory has received additional grant funding of $6.596 million from the commonwealth under the nation building and jobs plan and the social housing national partnership agreement. This funding provides for capital works, repairs and maintenance in relation to public housing properties and the on-passing of commonwealth funding to non-government schools for various capital repairs and maintenance projects to be undertaken.

I commend the instrument to the Assembly.

MADAM DEPUTY SPEAKER: Thank you, Ms Gallagher. So you don’t have any further paper that you need to table?

Ms Gallagher: That is the one I was given, but I think I have done it before.
