Mr Allan Fraser (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address a question to the Prime Minister. Did he inform the House that he would abstain from voting on the motion of want of confidence in himself? In explanation, let me say that I am doubtful whether I heard correctly, because this would mean that the Prime Minister was depriving himself of the vote of one of his greatest admirers, but the question I ask is: Is this indeed what happened? Or, did the Prime Minister vote for himself on this motion, as shown by " Hansard ", by following his usual practice of pairing with the Leader of the Opposition? If this was so, was it by accident, or was it yet another policy switch on the part of the Prime Minister?
