Mr BEAZLEY (Leader of the Opposition) (2:01 PM) —My question is to the Prime Minister. Does the Prime Minister realise it has been 19 days since I first challenged him to a national industrial relations debate? Why does the Prime Minister continue to hide behind $50 million worth of taxpayers’ funds for Liberal Party propaganda, 1,200 pages of extreme legislation and a parliamentary guillotine to kill off debate? When will the Prime Minister come out of hiding and agree to a national debate?

Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) —I might remind the Leader of the Opposition that no Prime Minister in 30 years has been as available and accountable to answer questions in this parliament as I have.
