Mr BOWEN (McMahonMinister for Immigration and Citizenship) (15:11): Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BOWEN: Yes.

The SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr BOWEN: Yesterday the member for Cook said in the chamber that I had engaged in a 'blatant falsehood' by saying that he had said the infrastructure costs on Nauru would be $10 million. I table a document which shows the five separate occasions on which the member for Cook said exactly that publicly.
