Mr SPENDER —Mr Deputy Speaker, I seek leave to make a very brief personal explanation.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —It might be best if we first dealt with the matter before the House and the honourable member then made his personal explanation. If he wants to speak in reply to his motion, I imagine he could do that.


Mr SPENDER —That is very kind of you, Mr Deputy Speaker. If you are giving me an opportunity to answer some of the things that have been said by the Attorney-General, I am most glad to have that opportunity.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —I am sure that if the honourable member for North Sydney had read the Standing Orders, he would have understood that the mover has the right to reply.
