Mr BEAZLEY —My question is to the Prime Minister, and it follows his previous answer. Prime Minister, are you trying to blame your head of department for the water ing down of your guidelines? Are you trying to say that, because you would not enforce these guidelines in the last parliament, the guidelines are now the responsibility of someone else for the development and enforcement?

Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) —Of course I am not trying to blame anybody. Of course I am not. I simply repeat that the changes made are realistic, sensible and contemporary, and I defend completely every one of the changes that have been made.
