Mr COLEMAN (Banks—Assistant Minister for Finance) ( 20:07 ): I move:

That this bill be now read a second time.

Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Bill (No. 1) 2018-2019 provides appropriations for 2018-19 for the operations of:

the Department of the Senate;

the Department of the House of Representatives;

the Department of Parliamentary Services; and

the Parliamentary Budget Office.

This bill seeks approval for appropriations from the Consolidated Revenue Fund of just under $250 million.

The Department of Parliamentary Services will receive approximately $193 million. This includes $2.9 million for the establishment of a Cyber Security Operations Centre for the Australian Parliament House, which will enhance cybersecurity for the parliamentary computer network.

Details of the proposed expenditure are set out in the schedule to the bill and the portfolio budget statements tabled in the parliament.
