Dr SOUTHCOTT (Boothby) (15:09): Madam Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?


The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Dr SOUTHCOTT: On three occasions, the Leader of the House has made an assertion that last week, in tabling the electricity bills from the Belair Hotel, I tabled something other than that which I said I would. I was very clear. I sought leave to table the electricity accounts of January 2012 and July 2012 of the Belair Hotel, and that is exactly what I tabled. Hansard will confirm that and the Table Office will confirm that. The assertion by the Leader of the House is quite simply false.

Mr Albanese interjecting

Dr SOUTHCOTT: I am just responding—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: No. The member for Boothby cannot respond to interjections. The Leader of the House is not assisting the chair.

Mr Albanese: I am trying to help, Madam Deputy Speaker, as always!

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: You are not.
