Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2021-2022, Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2021-2022; Second Reading
I firstly would like to thank those senators who have contributed to this debate. These additional estimates appropriation bills—the Appropriation Bill (No. 3) 2021-2022 and the Appropriation Bill (No. 4) 2021-2022—seek authority from the parliament for additional expenditure of money from the Consolidated Revenue Fund. Passage of the bills will ensure continuity of government programs and commencement of new activities agreed by the government since the 2021-22 budget and the Commonwealth's ability to meet its obligations for the remainder of 2021-22 as they fall due. Details of the bills were considered in the additional estimates process. Once again, I thank all senators for their contributions and commend these bills to the Senate.
Question agreed to.
Bills read a second time.
