My question is to the Minister for Finance, Senator Cormann. I refer to the minister's responsibility for budget policy advice and processes and review of government programs. Is the minister aware that for an average of $300 million per annum the government can save the entire auto industry? Has the government given up all hope of attracting over a billion dollars in new investment from General Motors Holden? Is the government aware that it can secure this investment for much less than $150 million per annum post-2017?
