Ms MacTiernan said the Budget review of Royalties for Regions projects was not an "attack on the bush" but "a discipline we're going to have to impose across Government".

"All of us are going to have to share the pain," she said.

"We are very, very conscious that there are projects that are going to have to be delayed because we're reviewing them."
