Dr EMERSON (Minister for Trade) (4:21 PM) —I seek to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon. Peter Slipper)—Does the minister claim to be misrepresented?

Mr Hockey —Mr Deputy Speaker, my understanding is that this can only take place in a break in proceedings. The MPI is still continuing.

Dr EMERSON —You saw what he did during—called me a liar and I’m going to clear that up.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —Would the member for North Sydney resume his seat. Would the minister resume his seat. I will give the call to the member for Dobell and the minister, under the forms of the House, does have the ability, if necessary, to extend the adjournment if he wants to make a point.

Dr EMERSON —On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker: I remind you that during my MPI this shadow minister misused the standing orders in order to call me a liar.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —There is no point of order. The Minister for Trade will resume his seat.
