Mr Speaker, under standing order 105(b) I am asking you if you could write to the Minister for Health about the following questions, which have been outstanding for more than 60 days: questions 602, 615, 616, 643, 644, 645, 646, 647, 648 and 784. I ask if you could write to the Minister for Health seeking reasons for the delay in answering those questions.

I thank the honourable member. I thought he was seeking to make a personal explanation, but I will certainly write to the minister as required by the standing orders.
