Mr JOHN COBB (Calare) (15:33): Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr JOHN COBB: I do.

The SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr JOHN COBB: The member for Watson, the environment minister, claimed that on behalf of the coalition I was moving a disallowance on the fact that the Howard government established the south-east marine park and the management plan there, too. Not so. As the minister would know if he listened or didn't tell porkies, in actual fact what we are moving is a disallowance of a management plan of the Gillard government.

The SPEAKER: The member will resume his seat. The member for Calare should withdraw.

Opposition members: 'Porkies'?

The SPEAKER: And now I might get everybody on the front bench to withdraw! The member for Calare.

Mr JOHN COBB: I withdraw.
