Mr FAHEY (Minister for Finance and Administration) (9:49 AM) —I move:

That the bill be now read a second time.

In Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 2) 2000-2001, appropriations totalling $0.5 million additional to those made in the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Act 2000-2001 are sought for recurrent and capital expenditures of the parliamentary departments.

The increases sought primarily relate to:

· funding for the departments of the Senate and the House of Representatives for the Citizenship Visits Program; and

· the House of Representatives for holders of public office, along with performing the secretariat role for matters raised by the Auditor-General and the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit.

I commend the bill to the House.

Debate (on motion by Mr Horne) adjourned.
