Greg Hunt: [auditor-general; allocation; tick-off; probity;] But let me say this: everything that is happening is genuine abatement, real emissions reduction. And I would note that they ran a program called the Clean Tech Investment program which gave out, I think it was about a billion dollars. The Auditor- general found that there was no effective allocation mechanism, no guarantee or value for money and 58% of the projects were not justified, whereas we've had 100% tick-off from an independent probity adviser. That means the public gets value for money, but most importantly we get massive emissions reduction in Australia on a scale never seen before.
an amount of money, space, etc. that is given to sb for a particular purpose.
