Paper and statement by minister
MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development, Minister for Sport and Recreation, Minister for Tourism and Events and Minister for Community Services): For the information of members, I present the following paper:
Financial Management Act, pursuant to section 17—Instrument varying appropriations relating to Commonwealth funding to the Health Directorate, including a statement of reasons, dated 25 March 2013.
I seek leave to make a statement in relation to the paper.
MR BARR: As required by the Financial Management Act 1996, I table an instrument issued under section 17 of the act. The direction and a statement of reasons for this instrument must be tabled in the Assembly within three sitting days after it is given. Section 17 of the act enables variations to appropriations for any increase in existing commonwealth payments by direction of the Treasurer.
The territory has received additional funding of $31.688 million from the commonwealth government for payments for health cross-border services. The funding will be on-passed to the ACT local health network as a net cost of outputs appropriation, and I commend the instrument to the Assembly.
Mr Barr presented the following paper, which was circulated to members when the Assembly was not sitting:
