Mr GARRICK - My question is addressed to the Prime Minister, although it should concern the Minister for Foreign Affairs and the Minister for Education and Science. I ask the right honourable gentleman: What would be his response to a letter from a very gravely concerned young school pupil, which reads:

Dear Mr Garrick, Please tell the Government some people in Australia are starving themselves because it is not sending enough money--

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honourable gentleman's question is out of order. He should ask a question, not read letters.

Mr GARRICK - I asked a question. 1 asked: What is the Prime Minister's response to this letter?

Mr SPEAKER - Yes, but I think the honourable member then asked the Prime Minister for an expression of opinion. I suggest that he ask his question in broader terms. I will give him time to consider it and call him later during question time.

Suggest corrections
