Minister, you are the presiding minister of the Crown in this chamber to tell us about how we are about to appropriate $150 million but you cannot tell us how much will actually come from the department of the environment, how many staff they have, who are the members of the interim committee, who are the supporting members or what amount you mean when you use the term 'some'. Can you please inform us of one, possibly two, members of the interim committee. Are you capable of mentioning that?
