This chapter sets out the procedures relating to the appropriation of public money of the Territory.
200. An enactment, vote or resolution for the appropriation of the public money of the Territory must not be proposed in the Assembly except by a Minister. Such proposals may be introduced by a Minister without notice.  (Amended 16 June 1994)
201. A Member, other than a Minister, may not move an amendment to a money proposal, as specified in standing order 200, if that amendment would increase the amount of public money of the Territory to be appropriated.  (Amended 16 June 1994)
201A. An amendment in accordance with standing order 201 must be in accordance with the resolution agreed to on 23 November 1995 – i.e. "That this Assembly reaffirms the principles of the Westminster system embodied in the ‘financial initiative of the Crown’ and the limits that that initiative places on non-executive Members in moving amendments other than those to reduce items of proposed expenditure.".
