Mr HUNT (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for the Environment and Heritage) (3:16 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER —Does the parliamentary secretary claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr HUNT —Yes, I do.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr HUNT —In question time today the Leader of the Opposition asserted that the member for La Trobe and I had called for ‘tighter handling’ of ammonium nitrate. This is incorrect. We specifically did not seek or call for any further changes in farm handling or sales procedures for ammonium nitrate. We did, however, call on the state Labor premiers to make existing information on ammonium nitrate sales available to the Commonwealth CrimTrac database. Contrary to the Leader of the Opposition’s assertion—

The SPEAKER —The member will resume his seat. He will not debate the issue.
