Mr SLIPPER (Fisher) (15:30): Mr Deputy Speaker, I have resumed my seat, as you have asked. I have now stood to my feet and I am seeking leave to make a personal explanation in accordance with the standing orders.

Leave granted.

Mr SLIPPER: Mr Deputy Speaker, the member for North Sydney asked me to withdraw. What I did was simply to relate a conversation that I had had with Mr Palmer. Mr Palmer knocked Mr Brough back as far as the funding request for James Ashby—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member for Fisher—

Mr SLIPPER: and Mr Palmer in fact said he had a high regard for me.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member for Fisher—

Mr SLIPPER: So there is nothing to withdraw because I was simply repeating a conversation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member for Fisher will resume his seat!
