Mr ZAHRA (3:21 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


Mr SPEAKER —Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr ZAHRA —I do.


Mr SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Mr ZAHRA —In response to a question today, the Minister for Forestry and Conservation accused me of breaking commitments to forest industry workers in my electorate. That is clearly a filthy, grubby lie.


Mr SPEAKER —The member for McMillan will withdraw that statement.


Mr ZAHRA —I withdraw the comment and suggest the word `lie' instead of `untruth'.
