Mr BEAZLEY (FREMANTLE, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I direct a question to you, Mr. Speaker. My question arises from a ruling that you gave on a question based on a newspaper report recently. Does the expression " vouch for its accuracy " mean that the member must vouch for the accuracy in the sense that his question corresponds accurately with the wording used in the newspaper, or must he vouch for the accuracy of the newspaper report in the sense that the report on which he bases his question must correspond with the facts?

Suggest corrections
