Mr BILLSON (4:20 PM) —Mr Speaker, I seek to make a personal explanation.


The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr PD Secker)—Does the member for Dunkley believe he has been misrepresented?


Mr BILLSON —Horrendously so.


The DEPUTY SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Mr BILLSON —In question time today in response to my question the Minister for Small Business, Independent Contractors and the Service Economy said that I had admitted that electricity prices would go up under the coalition’s plan. He seems to have been referring to a Courier Mail article of 4 February. There is absolutely no such admission and I would urge the minister to be a little more thoughtful and careful in seeking to attribute such admissions to the opposition.
