Mr MacKELLAR —Madam Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

Madam DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mrs Child) —Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr MacKELLAR —Yes.

Madam DEPUTY SPEAKER —The honourable member may proceed.

Mr MacKELLAR —In the course of the speech by the honourable member for the Northern Territory (Mr Reeves), I believe an imputation was made that somehow I had not paid proper duty or penalty in relation to the importation of a colour television set in 1981. I point out to the honourable member-I realise that he is a new member in the House and therefore inexperienced-that in fact, when it was made known to me that duty was chargeable, I paid the required amount of duty, plus the penalty that applied.
