Mr RUDDOCK (Berowra) (15:53): Mr Deputy Speaker, I seek to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Hon. Peter Slipper ): Does the member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr RUDDOCK: Yes, I do. I claim to have been grievously misrepresented by the minister. The minister suggested that I do not support the three-pronged approach of the opposition to dealing with the people-smuggling dilemma. I have supported all of the measures that the opposition has proposed and I do ask that you take a much more determined effort to get rejected asylum seekers out of Australia because the figures I have seen suggest that you have failed—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! The member for Berowra will resume his seat. I do not think it is appropriate to ask that the occupant of the chair take any particular course of action as suggested by the member for Berowra.
