The decrease in the Commissions of Inquiry & Similar Bodies category is due to:

  • elimination of residual surplus associated with the reallocation of shared services costs within Vote Internal Affairs (decrease of $2,000).

  • funding for the Local Government: Fit for the Future Initiative (increase of $1 million), and
