(Senator Keeffehaving addressed a question to the Minister representing the Minister for External Territories)

The PRESIDENT - Order! Before calling Senator Wright I shall give consideration to this question. Honourable senators are aware that I deprecate in the strongest possible way the making of statements in the guise of questions. Senator Keeffe's question, or pseudo-question, carries all the characteristics of such a statement. I will let it pass at the moment to the Minister representing the Minister for External Territories. He can deal with it as he wishes.

Senator Keeffe - It was a question.

The PRESIDENT - Order! I intend to be emphatic about stopping this practice. I am getting tired of it.

Senator WRIGHT (TASMANIA) (Minister for Works) - I require notice of the question.
