Ms JACKSON (4:44 PM) — Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Ms JACKSON —Yes.


The SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Ms JACKSON —In the House today during question time, the Minister for Employment Services claimed that I said in my first speech that `people with employment are being punished by one-sided mutual obligation policies'. I actually said—and I quote from Hansard:

People without employment are being punished by one-sided mutual obligation policies.

Perhaps the minister would be more effective in his portfolio if he were clear on the difference between unemployment and employment.


The SPEAKER —The member for Hasluck will resume her seat. She has indicated where she had been misrepresented.
