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.


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.
