Mr LATHAM (3:50 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr LATHAM —Yes, very much so.


The SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Mr LATHAM —The Minister for Small Business and Tourism, in his question time answer, selectively quoted from the Australian Quarterly in 1990. I have been misrepresented, because this was part of a debate about the Greiner Liberal government's decision to introduce full cost recovery on land servicing in Western Sydney. The Minister for Small Business and Tourism was of course working for the state government at the time. He was part of the decision to increase land prices in Western Sydney and that is the proper context of the document from which he was quoting.
