Mr CHRISTENSEN (Dawson) (16:34): Mr Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Mr Symon ): Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr CHRISTENSEN: Yes.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr CHRISTENSEN: Moments ago the environment minister posted a tweet. He obviously has a busy schedule since he was twittering away in parliament! He made mention of the fact that I support the supertrawler when in fact I do not. I never have supported that. If he would read the Hansardcarefully he would see that what I suggested was that, if he can stop one boat, why can't his government stop the people-smuggling boats?
