Falklands : LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY THURSDAY, 21 FEBRUARY 2013 MOTIONS
Submitted by Falkland Islands News Network (Juanita Brock) 08.03.2013 (Article Archived on 05.04.2013)

That, pursuant to section 10 of the Stanley Common Ordinance (Title 34.5), this House resolves to approve the making of the Mullet Creek Track Regulations 2013.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY THURSDAY, 21 FEBRUARY 2013 MOTIONS


 


Motion No 1 of 2013 by the Honourable Sharon Halford


 


That, pursuant to section 10 of the Stanley Common Ordinance (Title 34.5), this House resolves to approve the making of the Mullet Creek Track Regulations 2013.


 


Proposed: The Honourable Sharon Halford


 


IH:  Mr Speaker, I am content to second the Motion.


 


There was no debate and the Motion passed.


 


 


Motion No 2 of 2013 by the Honourable the Financial Secretary


 


“That this House refers the on-going deliberations on the 2013/14 budget to a Select Committee on the Estimates for presentation to the Assembly in May 2013 and therefore for the Select Committee on the Estimates to be established at this time”.


 


NG:  Mr Speaker, Honourable Members, I propose this Motion today in order to commence the Budget setting process for the 2013/14 financial year.  As Honourable members are aware, last year Budget Session was opened in February rather than the historic time of year in May.  This was a change in process of the previous years as the extended budget cycle was able to take place in formal committee meetings rather than the informal meetings previously used.  This prevented repetition and ensured that the extended time frame for the process was allowed and decisions were taken with appropriate consideration.


 


Therefore the House has agreed to approve the opening of the Select committee on the estimates at this time with a final report being presented to the May 2013 Assembly alongside the resultant Finance Bill and Appropriation Bill.


 


The Standing Orders provide that membership of the Select Committee is all elected members, the Chief Executive and the Financial Secretary.


 


And it is proposed that the Committee be chaired by the Honourable MLA Edwards.  The purpose of the Select Committee on the Estimates will be to review the budget submissions from Government Officers, related fees and charges and Capital Requests in order to provide advice on the Finance Bill through to being presented to Executive Council in May 2013.


 


Mr Speaker, I beg to move that the Select Committee on the Estimates is established.


 


KP:  I am happy to second the Motion.


 


There was no debate or objections and the Motion passed.


 


 


 


 


Supplementary Appropriation Bill (2012-2013) Bill 2013


 


Nicola Granger moved the first reading of the Bill and Keith Padgett seconded the Motion.


 


NG:  Mr Speaker, Honourable members, this is the third supplementary Appropriation Bill to be presented for the current financial year.  Its purpose is to authorise the withdrawal of the additional sum of £457,000.00 from the Consolidated Fund to meet supplementary expenditure approved by the Standing Finance Committee on the 20th of December 2012 and the 23rd of January 2013. 


 


The supplementary expenditure was approved for the following purposes:


 


1.     £284,000.00 for various staffing proposals approved as part of the Interim Staffing Review


2.     £55,000.00 to assist Islanders attending various sporting events abroad


3.     £53,000.00 for legal fees and specialist advice in connection with recent court cases


4.     £8,000.00 for forms and equipment for the Police


 


A full departmental breakdown in included in the schedule to the Bill.


 


I beg to move that the Bill be red a second time. 


 


The Chief Executive seconded the Motion.  There was no debate and the Bill was dealt with by the short procedure and the Bill passed.
