Mr CASH (STIRLING, WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I ask the Minister for Health whether the campaign to prevent foot and mouth disease in the Australian Capital Territory would benefit from the co-operation of that ever-constant odontopedalogist, the Leader of the Opposition, whose frequent incorrect predictions illustrate the point of this question.

Mr Beazley - I rise to order, Mr. Speaker. A few minutes ago the honorable member for Lilley ended a question by asking whether it proved the complete irresponsibility of the Leader of the Opposition. When the Leader of the Opposition sought to defend himself, you ruled that he was out of order. If you intend to permit questions that contain imputations against honorable members, will you also permit those honorable members to defend themselves during question time?
