Mr BEALE —I refer the Minister for Science and Minister Assisting the Treasurer on Prices to the fact that the price of renting an average three-bedroom unfurnished house in Sydney is now $267 a week, an increase of over 33 per cent in the past year. What does the Minister intend to do about this outrageous situation?

Mr KEATING —I answered that question yesterday.

Mr Donald Cameron —A point of order--

Madam SPEAKER —Will the Treasurer resume his seat? Does the honourable member for Moreton have a point of order?

Mr Donald Cameron —Yes. He did not try to take off Bill Hayden, but he keeps jumping on Barry Jones.

Madam SPEAKER —Order! The honourable member for Moreton will resume his seat. The Treasurer is quite in order.

Mr KEATING —I have nothing to add to what I said to the same question yesterday.
