Mr SHORTEN (MaribyrnongLeader of the Opposition) (15:12): Madam Speaker, I seek to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr SHORTEN: I certainly have, by the Prime Minister in question time. He alleged that I was talking down our airlines. Qantas and its staff do a great job. Virgin and its staff do a great job. I have been through it and I have seen the costs.

The SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat.

Mr SHORTEN: I am just appalled at this government sending our jobs overseas.

The SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat. He knows perfectly well that, when you are dealing with an area where you claim to have been misrepresented, it is not a debate; it is simply a statement of where it occurred and what the correction is.
