Senator Ludlam asked:
Senator LUDLAM-I will leave it there. You have probably given us most of the information already but, just to be sure, could you provide for us on paper the amount of money that has been spent to date as opposed to allocated?
Mr Clarke-With regard to which-
Senator LUDLAM-To each of the five streams. You may have given us all of that already.
Mr Clarke-To each of the LETDF projects?
Mr Morling-I think I gave it as part of my answer.
Senator LUDLAM-I am just not sure if we got all of it.
Mr Morling-If not, we will provide it as a follow-up.
Senator LUDLAM-Much appreciated.
