My question is to the Minister for Sport, Senator Colbeck. Prior to the election, Sport Australia CEO, Kate Palmer, twice stated that Senator McKenzie, as sports minister, had only awarded Community Sports Infrastructure grants to projects recommended by Sport Australia. Then, only three days before the election, Ms Palmer changed her position, stating, 'Some projects from the eligible pool of applicants that were preferred by the minister were approved by her.' How many times did Senator McKenzie approve taxpayer money, for her personally preferred projects, against the recommendation of Sport Australia?
