Mr SPEAKER -Order! I draw the attention of the House to the effect on question time of asking long and involved question's which require long and involved answers. I suggest that honourable members take some cognisance of the matter. This is one of the reasons why question time is not functioning as it should. The matter is not in my hands; it is in the hands of honourable members and Ministers. If honourable members ask Long and involved questions it is not correct nor proper for me to interfere when the Minister makes a long answer in reply.
