Mr ABBOTT (WarringahLeader of the Opposition) (16:34): I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Does the Leader of the Opposition claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr ABBOTT: Most grievously.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition has the call.

Mr ABBOTT: Repeatedly today in question time the Prime Minister claimed that I intended to cut funding to public schools. I said no such thing; I intend no such thing; I would do no such thing. There is only one hit list. It is the Prime Minister's hit list under which one in three schools right around Australia will have their funding cut as the Gonski review stands, even if fully funded.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat. He has indicated where he has been misrepresented.
