Mr REITH —-My question is addressed to the Treasurer. Given the failure of the Minister for Finance to answer the first question, I ask: will adoption of the Caucus committee report on Medicare seriously undermine the credibility of his Budget? What action will the Treasurer take to protect his Budget from this attack by the Labor Caucus?

Mr KERIN —-This is really a hypothetical question. The precise situation that the honourable gentleman is referring to in his question is hypothetical. As my colleague the Minister for Finance has stated, this matter is under consideration by the Caucus.
