Mr PORTER —Yes, Mr Acting Speaker, I claim to have been misrepresented.


Mr ACTING SPEAKER —The honourable member may proceed.


Mr PORTER —Thank you, Mr Acting Speaker. In the Melbourne Herald of Saturday, 12 November an article appeared under the heading: 'Libs: ''A bolt from the blue'' on Rock'. This refers to the Federal Government's action on Ayers Rock. The editor, Ross McSwain, contacted both the honourable member for Bradfield (Mr Connolly), the shadow Minister for the environment, and me to obtain comments in relation to the Federal Government's action. The article, whilst correct in the comments that it records, unfortunately has the names reversed. For the record I would like to correct this. Where Mr Connolly's name appears my name should appear, and vice versa.
