Senator PATTERSON (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Foreign Affairs) (3:33 PM) —Madam Deputy President, I seek leave to make a short personal explanation.

Leave granted.


Senator PATTERSON —In taking note of answers to questions without notice earlier today, I referred to two facilities, and I have not been able to check whether they are nursing homes or not. I indicated that some places had problems under the Labor government. I do have some examples from the Age of 13 February 1995 and the Sunday Telegraph of 5 June. Of the other examples, one or two to which I referred may not have been. I am not sure, and I cannot confirm it. I wish to clarify that point.
