Transfer of expenditure authority for the same purposes

5           The Minister of Finance may, at his discretion, transfer for the same purposes to any appropriations under any service heading of the Estimates any part or all of the money the expenditure of which is to be authorized under the service heading Other Appropriations (27) and in the appropriations under that heading for:

Authority for expenditures in anticipation of recoveries

9           Where an item in an appropriation for a department of government as shown in the Estimates showed that a nil amount or a net amount of expenditure was to be authorized for the purpose of the department rendering services or providing materials, supplies or property to another department or agency of the government, on the basis that all or a portion of the total amount to be expended by the first mentioned department for those purposes would be recovered from that other department or other agency in anticipated amounts as set out in the item in the Estimates, the amount that may be expended through the first mentioned department for the purposes of rendering the services or providing the materials, supplies or property, in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1995 shall be the total of:

(a) the net amount voted in the item, whether or not it is a nil vote; and

(b) the anticipated amount of the recoveries as set out in the item in the Estimates to the extent that it is reasonably anticipated that the recoveries will be made.

Lapse of appropriations

10             Any part of the money under Schedule A appropriated by this Act out of the Consolidated Fund that may be unexpended at the end of March 31, 1995, shall not be expended thereafter except in payment of accounts and expenses incurred on or prior to the said day; and all balances remaining unexpended after the said date or at such subsequent date as is authorized by the provisions of The Financial Administration Act shall lapse and be written off.

Power to borrow

11             The Lieutenant Governor in Council may authorize the raising, by way of loan or loans, upon the credit of the government, in accordance with the provisions of The Financial Administration Act, such sum or sums of money not exceeding in the aggregate the net sum of $900,000,000. as may be considered necessary for making any payments authorized or required by any Act to be made out of the Consolidated Fund or for reimbursing the Consolidated Fund for any such payment made therefrom.

Abatement of authority

12         On the coming into force of this Act, expenditures made under the authority of the Special Warrant issued pursuant to Order-in-Council 188/1994 to provide money for the operation of the Government of Manitoba in the fiscal year ending March 31, 1995 shall be deemed to have been made under the authority of this Act, and the said Special Warrant shall cease to have effect.
