Mr MURPHY (3:31 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr MURPHY —I certainly do.


The SPEAKER —The member for Lowe may proceed.


Mr MURPHY —During question time the education minister made adverse references to me and others in relation to the Leader of the Opposition's earlier statements about funding for Catholic schools. I can assure you that the Leader of the Opposition is totally committed to Catholic education—


The SPEAKER —The member for Lowe will resume his seat. I am a little troubled about where the whole question of personal explanations is going and I will look at it over the summer break. If my memory serves me well, in fact the minister made what was not an adverse reference to the member for Lowe, but I will check the Hansard record, as I have indicated I will do for the member for Watson. I also think we need to look again at the way in which personal explanations are used. I call the member for Prospect. It is like question time revisited, one might observe.
