Mr BURKE (Watson—Manager of Opposition Business) (15:22): I seek to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER: Does the Manager of Opposition Business claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr BURKE: Yes—by the Deputy Prime Minister.

The SPEAKER: The manager of Opposition Business may proceed.

Mr BURKE: On Tuesday in question time, the Deputy Prime Minister said, 'He is actually the shadow water minister, and the whole time there he has never asked me one question about water—not one.' At one level he is right: I have not asked one; I have asked three, on 21 November last year, on 28 November last year and on 29 November last year. The confusion may have arisen because questions were asked but answers weren't given!
