User Guide

The purpose of the Portfolio Supplementary Additional Estimates Statements (SAES) is to explain Appropriation Bill (No. 6) 2007-08. This document serves to inform senators and members of Parliament of the proposed allocation of extra appropriation resources to Government outcomes by agencies within the portfolio.

Appropriation Bill (No. 6), which follows on from Appropriation Bill (No. 2), found in Budget Paper No. 4 and Appropriation Bill (No. 4) produced at Additional Estimates, will provide additional expenditure authority in respect of the 2007-08 financial year for capital works and services, payments to or for the states, territories and local government authorities, and new administered outcomes not authorised by specific legislation.

The SAES are declared by Appropriation Bill (No. 6) 2007-08 to be a ‘relevant document’ to the interpretation of the Bills according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.

Overview of Additional Appropriations Sought

As a result of measures taken by the Australian Government since the 2007-08 Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs is seeking additional appropriations through Appropriation Bill (No. 6) 2007-08. This relates to the provision of funding for the measure identified in Tables 1.1 and 1.3 of this document.

Funding has been provided to build more supported accommodation for people with a disability. These new supported accommodation places will be available to people with disability who may not currently have appropriate accommodation. They will also be available for people with disability whose parents are ageing and can no longer care for them at home. These additional facilities, to assist with the transition of people with disability from home to other accommodation arrangements, will allow older carers to better plan the future of their children.
