Mr TUCKEY (3:57 PM) —Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr TUCKEY —Grossly, sir.


The SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Mr TUCKEY —Reference was made today to my having a lack of proactive interest in the climate change issue—and you, Sir, could refer it. By inference, I have that. I draw the House’s attention to the speeches I have made in this place over a decade on issues such as tidal power, hydrogen fuel cells and other matters. If that is to be doubted, I suggest to those who suggest I am a dinosaur that they go to my current website to see my thoughts on these issues.


Ms Gillard —I wish to table the document referred to yesterday, and particularly draw the House’s attention to the page which reads:

Here is a list of recent funding announcements from Peter Slipper for Fisher.

The member for Fisher would have you believe he does not support announcements he says are from him on a page where he has a photograph. I table the document.


The SPEAKER —The Deputy Prime Minister has tabled the document.


Mr Pyne —She needs to seek leave to table the document.


Mr Albanese —No, she doesn’t, you idiot!


The SPEAKER —Order! The Leader of the House will withdraw.


Mr Albanese —I was trying to help. I withdraw if it helps. I am always helpful, Mr Speaker.


Mr Pyne interjecting


The SPEAKER —The member for Sturt might assist by not interjecting at this very late stage.


Mr Albanese —The Manager of Opposition Business is delusional.
