Mr RIPOLL (OxleyParliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer and Parliamentary Secretary for Small Business) (15:55): I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Hon. BC Scott ): Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr RIPOLL: Yes.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr RIPOLL: During question time today I was misrepresented by the shadow small minister for business.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Order! Come on, member for Oxley. It is the shadow minister for small business.

Mr RIPOLL: He misquoted me.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Member for Oxley, I think you might look at the phrasing of your description of the small minister.

Mr RIPOLL: That was what I was hoping for from the shadow minister. He said that in a speech that I made I said that small businesses do not pay the carbon price.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: I have asked the parliamentary secretary to correct, for the record, the description of who he said he was misrepresented by.

Mr RIPOLL: By the shadow minister.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: For?

Mr RIPOLL: For small business.

Opposition members interjecting

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: I thank the parliamentary secretary.

Mr RIPOLL: Almost as big as the shadow minister.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Member for Oxley, you have the call to show where you have been misrepresented.

Mr RIPOLL: I quoted that small business do not pay the carbon price. In fact, what I said was that small businesses do not pay the carbon price. It is a price paid by Australia's biggest polluters.
