Mr TANNER (Minister for Finance and Deregulation) (8:01 PM) —I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

Appropriation Bill (No. 2) 2010-2011 seeks approval for appropriations from the Consolidated Revenue Fund totalling $9.54 billion.

The budget appropriation bills reflect changes to the appropriations framework introduced by the government under Operation Sunlight. These changes are outlined in the introduction to Budget Paper No. 4 and the explanatory memoranda.

Details of the proposed appropriations are set out in schedule 2 to the bill, the main features of which were outlined in the Budget Speech delivered by my colleague, the Treasurer, earlier this evening.

I commend the bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Pyne) adjourned.
