Mr BEAZLEY —My question is to the Prime Minister, and it reiterates the last question, which he did not answer. Prime Minister, do you recollect in your election campaign that you undertook that you would ensure untimed local voice and data calls, not just out of people's residences but also out of businesses? When you made a statement last night, Prime Minister, on these matters you excluded reference to business. Does this mean that that was a non-core promise? Are you now going to fail to prevent timed voice and data calls to business premises on the local service?

Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) —It does not mean anything of the kind.
