Mr BRENDAN O'CONNOR (GortonMinister for Immigration and Citizenship) (15:34): Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BRENDAN O'CONNOR: Yes.

The SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr BRENDAN O'CONNOR: In question time today the member for Stirling and the member for Sturt both asserted my statements in the parliament in relation to a detainee held in detention were inconsistent. I reject that assertion. What happened there, of course, was the effort to use parliamentary procedure in order to allow the member for Wentworth to come back and do his MPI.
