RESOLUTIONS EXPRESSING OPINIONS OF THE SENATE

Parliament

26 Appropriation bills - payments to international organisations

The Senate is of the view that:

(a) an initial payment to an international organisation in effect represents a new policy decision and therefore should be Appropriation Bill (No. 2); and

(b) subsequent payments represent a continuing government activity of supporting the international organisation and therefore represents an ordinary annual service and should be in Appropriation Bill (No. 1).
