My question is to the Prime Minister. Was the decision by the Minister for Home Affairs to provide the National Retail Association an $880,000 grant from the proceeds of crime, after they had donated to his election campaign, consistent with the Prime Minister's ministerial standards?

I thank the member for his question. On this matter, decisions relating to the funding of local projects to improve community safety under the Safer Communities funds were made consistent with the relevant rules and guidelines. They were made consistent with those matters, and I think that settles the issues.
