(Senator Jessophaving addressed a question to the Minister for Health)

The PRESIDENT - I anticipated some objection being launched to Senator Jessop's question, which I think invites a statement from the Leader of the Government. Question time is not the time to make such a statement. If the Leader of the Government wishes to make a statement on that matter he may seek leave to do so. I do not think question time should be used as a forum for this sort of propaganda question, as I have indicated to honourable senators on many occasions. The purpose of question time is to seek information. I disallow the question.
