Dr LEIGH (Fraser) (15:10): Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Dr LEIGH: Yes, Madam Speaker, I do, most grievously.

The SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Dr LEIGH: On three occasions during question time, the Prime Minister suggested that I support the government's GP tax. This is false. The Prime Minister should worry more about what he promised last year while he was campaigning for election than what I wrote when I was in university.

The SPEAKER: I might say that when you have a personal explanation, it is not an opportunity to entertain debate.

Mr Pyne: He is very embarrassed, Madam Speaker!
