This chapter deals with financial legislation only in so far as different considerations apply to it and different procedures are followed in its consideration in the Senate; in so far as such legislation is treated in the same way as other legislation, it is covered by Chapter 12, and that chapter should therefore be read in conjunction with this chapter.
The chapter is divided into the following main parts:
- an outline of the relevant constitutional provisions
- procedures for dealing with financial legislation
- the Senate’s interpretation of section 53 and related issues
- parliamentary appropriations.
