JOURNALIST:

Mr Howard, Ralph Willis has apologised. Is that good enough?

HOWARD:

No, I want the Federal Police inquiry to go ahead but I’ll talk to you later.

JOURNALIST:

Do you accept his apology? What about Mr Beazley’s involvement?

HOWARD:

I think it would be very interesting to know whether Mr Willis consulted Mr Beazley. They were together in Canberra or certainly in communication and I want to know the role of Mr Beazley in this whole affair. 1 find it very hard to believe that Mr Willis

acted unilaterally, I really do and I think that matter ought to be pursued very strongly.

JOURNALIST:

Is it too much to ask for (inaudible)

HOWARD:

Well I tell you what. If the Government followed the standards we followed, Willis would have gone last night.
