Portfolio Additional Estimates Statements 2004-05

All Publications on this page have been produced in PDF format and require Acrobat Reader for viewing. If you do not have Acrobat Reader, you can download it from the Adobe web site.

The purpose of the Defence portfolio additional estimates statements, like that of the portfolio budget statements, is to inform Senators and Members of the basis for the revised Defence budget, with particular emphasis on the proposed appropriations in Appropriation Bills (Nos 3 and 4) 2004-05.

This document contains the portfolio additional estimates for the Defence Housing Authority, which provides housing to meet Defence's requirements.

The document does not address the Department of Veterans' Affairs, which is part of the Defence portfolio but for which statements are tabled separately.

The structure of the Portfolio Additional Estimate Statements 2004-05, as outlined below, is on an 'except for' basis. Only changes that have occurred since the Portfolio Budget Statements 2004-05 are reported. If there are no changes, for example, in discretionary grants from Chapter Two, no information is reported.
