Mr IAN MACFARLANE (Groom) (12:56): I have one last question and I hope it does not end up in a tutorial. I remind the minister that during my time in his portfolio I was one of the greatest exponents of foreign investment in Australia and in fact spent a great deal of time travelling explaining to particularly our friends to the north how welcome they were in Australia. I continue to do that, can I say.

Minister, in regard to the carbon capture and storage flagship program where the government is following the coalition's lead of reducing the allocation there and asking the coal industry to increase their contribution to that program, what projects do you expect to see from that program in the next three years and at what stage does the government decide whether or not this is a program that they wish to continue with?
