Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018

Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2017‑2018

 

 

 

Statement pursuant to the order of

the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 

 


These amendments are directed at addressing a contravention of section 54 of the Constitution. They seek to remove funds which have been misclassified as ordinary annual services from Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018 and to amend Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2017‑2018 to appropriate those funds. The amendments to Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018 are framed as requests because they are to a bill which appropriates moneys for the ordinary annual services of the government.

 

 

 

Statement by the Clerk of the Senate pursuant

to the order of the Senate of 26 June 2000

 

 

 

The amendments proposed to Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018 and Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2017‑2018 would transfer funds which it is argued have been misclassified in a way that would prevent the Senate amending a proposal for new expenditure. In particular, funds argued not to relate to ordinary annual services of the government have been included in Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018. However, as this is otherwise a bill appropriating moneys for the ordinary annual services, and section 53 of the Constitution precludes the Senate amending such a bill, it is in accordance with the precedents of the Senate for the amendments to Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2017‑2018 to be moved as requests.
