Portfolio Budget Statements 2007-08

The purpose of the 2007-08 Portfolio Budget Statements (PB Statement) is to inform Senators and Members of Parliament of the proposed allocation of resources to Government outcomes by agencies within the portfolio. Agencies receive resources from the annual appropriations bills, special appropriations, standing appropriations (including special accounts), and revenue from other sources.

A key role of the PB Statements is to facilitate the understanding of proposed annual appropriations in Appropriation Bills No. 1 and No. 2 2007-08 (or Appropriation Bill [Parliamentary Departments] No. 1 2007-08 for the parliamentary departments). In this sense the PB Statements are officially Budget Related Papers and are declared by the Appropriation Bills to be ‘relevant documents’ to the interpretation of the Bills according to section 15AB of the Acts Interpretation Act 1901.
