Reasons for Change in Appropriation

This multiyear appropriation increased by $16.437 million in 2015/16 due to the carry-forward of $17.571 million of underspends related to the expiring of the 2012/13 to 2014/15 multiyear appropriation. This increase is partially offset by a decrease of $466,000 relating to a fiscally neutral transfer to Vote Foreign Affairs and Trade, Non-Departmental Output Expense, Pacific Broadcasting Services.
