The variation in the Lower Courts and Tribunals output reflects savings measures across government, offset by increased funding to meet the costs of criminal matters and jury days and additional funding for replacement of the ageing Katherine Courthouses airconditioning system. The decrease in the Integrated Justice Information System (IJIS) output in 2013-14 relates to funding carried forward into 2012-13 for the modernisation of IJIS.
