Mr COLEMAN (Banks—Assistant Minister for Finance) (16:14): I would like to thank all members who have contributed to the debate on Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017-2018 and Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2017-2018. These additional estimates appropriation bills seek authority from the parliament for the additional expenditure of money from the Consolidated Revenue Fund for this financial year. In introducing the bills the government already highlighted some of the more significant items provided for in these bills. The bills provide funding for some measures that were included in the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook where agencies do not have sufficient appropriations in the 2017-18 financial year to manage the net impact of measures alongside other changes to their estimates. The total of the appropriations sought through these two appropriation bills is approximately $1.5 billion. Once again, I thank all members for their contribution and commend these bills.

Question agreed to.
