I am seeking clarification. This is the government's bill and the government's amendments.

If we have misunderstood it then it can be clarified. Where is the $800 million coming from? It can be very, very easily clarified. So there is a lack of clarity on that.

There has been absolutely no clarification. I want to move to another series of questions about the funding scheduled that was referred to in the amendments. I refer to item 4 of the amendments to schedule 5 which sets out a new funding schedule. Can the Treasurer confirm the total amount of the reduction in funding to ARENA under that funding schedule and which years it will be coming out of? I am interested in the profile between years 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. What cuts are being made in which particular years? Can the Treasurer enlighten the House?
