Mr PYNE (SturtManager of Opposition Business) (15:16): Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr PYNE: I do—yet again by the Minister for School Education, Early Childhood and Youth, who continues to make the statement that I want to dismiss one in seven teachers that work in schools. I point out to the House yet again—it must be the 20th time—that of course the federal government does not run any schools and does not employ any teachers, so the federal minister for education cannot dismiss any teachers, which makes the statement false.
