Annual reports by State authorities

             (1)  Subject to subsection (2), the chief officer of an eligible authority of a State shall, as soon as practicable, and in any event within 3 months, after each 30 June, give to the Minister a written report that:

                     (a)  if information that section 102 or 102A requires to be set out in the Minister's report under Division 2 relating to the year ending on that 30 June can be derived from the authority's records--sets out that information; or

                     (b)  in any other case--states that no such information can be so derived.

          (1A)  A report under subsection (1) must include a statement of the total expenditure (including expenditure of a capital nature) incurred by the eligible authority concerned in connection with the execution of warrants during the year to which the report relates.

             (2)  Where a Minister of a State has given to the Minister a written report that sets out the information that, but for this subsection, subsections (1) and (1A) would require to be set out in a report by the chief officer of an eligible authority of that State, the chief officer need not give to the Minister the last-mentioned report.
