Mr ZAHRA (NaN:00:00) —My question is directed to the Prime Minister. Prime Minister, yesterday you claimed that John and Wendy, a typical Australian family, would get an extra $12 a fortnight from your GST package. Doesn't your GST advertising claim `typical families gain $40 to $50 a week'? Prime Minister, when are you going to tell the thousands of Australian families, like John and Wendy, that they are not `typical' and therefore will not get anything like the money your ads are promising?


Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) —The ads say typical families get that amount and those ads are right.
