I will reiterate what I said yesterday: this government is absolutely committed to doing everything we can to address this very, very serious issue. Let's focus on the facts: those opposite did announce a $20 million action plan on 5 August, the first day of the caretaker period last year. However, two days later on 7 August the then Minister for Finance, Senator Wong, signed off on the PEFO, which shows only $9.2 million was in fact allocated to the FASD Action Plan. It clearly says in black and white that it was on 7 August.
