Senator WONG (South AustraliaMinister for Finance and Deregulation) (11:43): I do not know and I am not familiar with the details of the emissions intensity of that particular generator. We have laid out the policy principles around the allocation of this assistance. There will obviously be ongoing consultation with industry about the detail of that. Again I would say it is less a commercial-in-confidence issue than a market issue. I do not think it would be appropriate, in the context of a very substantial amount of funding, for me to be indicating an estimate of what particular market participants might receive from this assistance package. I think what is in the public interest is what is in the explanatory memorandum and in the package itself around the principles for the allocation of funding. How that translates to the factual circumstances of particular generators is a matter to be dealt with either between the regulator and those generators in relation to the free permits or the regulator and the department.
