Questions without Notice
Community Sport Infrastructure Grant Program
My question is again to the Prime Minister. How can the Prime Minister possibly claim that his office was only passing on information when the Audit Office found that there were emails between his office and Senator McKenzie's office on both 10 and 11 April—and I quote the Audit Office—'sorting out what the final lists of approved projects would look like'?
I simply say what I've said consistently on this matter: my office provided information based on the representations made to us, including information about other funding options or programs relevant to project proposals. That's exactly what we've done. I've been very consistent in these representations. The Leader of the Opposition can be wishing and hoping it was something different to that, but he's wrong.
