Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Wight (LILLEY, QUEENSLAND) - Does the honorable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr Browne - Yes, grossly and maliciously. The honorable member for Macquarie stated that I had said that subsidizing the pyrites industry was uneconomic. I said nothing of the sort. The industry is already subsidized. Every producer of pyrites in Australia is receiving the subsidy, and I distinctly congratulated the Government on renewing the subsidy. What I did say - and everybody in this chamber, including the honorable member for Macquarie who. in extenuation, I must say is not noted for being a great thinker, and perhaps misheard me - was that it could be uneconomic to subsidize further production from, at present, unexplored deposits.
