Mr ALBANESE (4:38 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


The SPEAKER —Does the member for Grayndler claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr ALBANESE —I do, most grievously, just now.


The SPEAKER —The member for Grayndler may proceed.


Mr ALBANESE —The member for Macquarie, Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Education and Training, asserted today, a few seconds ago, that I had asserted that he unilaterally cancelled a committee meeting. Page 14470 of House Hansard reports that I said:

Can the member advise whether the committee meeting scheduled for 9 a.m. today was cancelled to avoid embarrassment at the impact these cuts will have in undermining the committee's deliberations?


The SPEAKER —The member for Grayndler has indicated where he has been misrepresented. He will resume his seat.


Mr ALBANESE —Perhaps he should have just answered it last Thursday.
