Part 3—Advance to the responsible Presiding Officer

  

11  Advance to the responsible Presiding Officer

             (1)  If a responsible Presiding Officer determined an amount under subsection 11(2) of the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Act (No. 1) 2018‑2019 before the commencement of this Act, the amount is to be disregarded for the purposes of subsections 11(3), (4), (5) and (6) of that Act.

Note:          This means that, after the commencement of this Act, the responsible Presiding Officers have access to the following amounts under section 11 of the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Act (No. 1) 2018‑2019, regardless of amounts that have already been determined under that section:

(a)    for the Department of the Senate—$300,000;

(b)    for the Department of the House of Representatives—$300,000;

(c)    for the Department of Parliamentary Services—$1 million;

(d)    for the Parliamentary Budget Office—$300,000.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  this Act appropriates an amount for particular expenditure; and

                     (b)  before the commencement of this Act, a responsible Presiding Officer determined an amount (the advanced amount) under section 11 of the Appropriation (Parliamentary Departments) Act (No. 1) 2018‑2019 for the expenditure;

the amount appropriated by this Act for the expenditure is taken to be reduced (but not below nil) by the advanced amount.
