Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (3:07 PM) —Mr Speaker, I seek the indulgence of the chair to add to an answer.

The SPEAKER —The Prime Minister may proceed.

Mr HOWARD —On 14 August I made a ministerial statement on energy initiatives. In the course of that statement, in referring to cost of the initiatives, I correctly estimated the total cost at $1.3 billion over 8 years. But in relation to the particular LPG incentives there was a transposition of figures, and instead of reading into the Hansard $766.1 million, I read into the Hansard $677.1 million. I apologise to the House for that mistake.
