Mr BRIGGS (3:35 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BRIGGS —Outrageously, Mr Speaker.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr BRIGGS —Yesterday in this House and on ABC Online the Minister for Immigration and Citizenship directly implied that I had not sought a briefing from him on the ambush decision to establish a detention facility at Inverbrackie in the Adelaide Hills. I seek leave to table the two occasions on which the shadow minister and I have sought briefings in the last two weeks. We are yet to get an answer.

Leave not granted.
