Dr KEMP (Minister for Schools, Vocational Education and Training and Minister Assisting the Minister for Finance for Privatisation)(4.08 p.m.) —I desire to make a personal explanation.


Mr ACTING SPEAKER —Do you claim to have been misrepresented?


Dr KEMP —I do.


Mr ACTING SPEAKER —Proceed.


Dr KEMP —An article in the Sydney Morning Herald today had a headline which completely misrepresented an answer of mine in question time yesterday. My answer was that the Labor Party was responsible for the unemployment tragedy that Australia now faces. As I said yesterday, they tried to use their programs to constantly redefine the long-term unemployed as the short-term unemployed. That deceit is now being exposed.
