The House of Representatives economics committee has scheduled a two-hour public hearing on Monday to look at four bills dealing with carbon pricing and the $10 billion Clean Energy Finance Corporation.
The committee will then report back to parliament on Wednesday.
Committee deputy chairman and Liberal MP Steve Ciobo told reporters he had sought a broader inquiry but Labor had used its numbers to allow only two hours of evidence from treasury and the climate change department.
"This is a new, abysmal record for this government - $10 billion of spending being allocated only two hours. That's $5 billion an hour," he said.
"It completely erodes the ability of the parliament to properly scrutinise taxpayers' money being spent."
