Mr McMULLAN (2:37 PM) —My question is to the Prime Minister. Consequent upon him referring in that last answer to what might happen in 2010, I ask: will the Prime Minister commit to serving a full term if he wins the next election?

Government members interjecting—

Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) —I will commit—

The SPEAKER —Order! Order! The Prime Minister will resume his seat. The Prime Minister will be heard. I call the Prime Minister.

Mr HOWARD —I am prepared to commit to a lot of things, and the first thing I am going to commit to is pursuing, while I have breath, the undoubted links between the union thugs and the Australian Labor Party. Mr Speaker, that is the first thing—and I tell you what: you will hear a lot of things about that over the years ahead, and I refer you to the previous statements I have made on the subject.
