My question is to the minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Brandis. Last night, the budget did not mention global warming once, not a peep. The Treasurer's speech completely ignored it. The budget papers ignored it.
With reference to the following programs cut in the 2014-15 Budget as part of the Smaller Government Reform Agenda, can a list be provided of the annual budget (including operating costs and staff levels) for programs prior to their abolition?
The Advertiser on 4 February had a pretty big, attention-grabbing headline: 'Australia's nuclear reactor will stop making lifesaving medicines next year unless waste storage facilities are expanded'. That is not actually true, though, is it? It is not the case.
