Ms PLIBERSEK (SydneyMinister for Health) (15:10): Madam Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Does the minister claim to have been misrepresented?

Ms PLIBERSEK: Yes, I do.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The minister has the call.

Ms PLIBERSEK: I want to correct an article by Karen Dearne on page 34 of the Australian today. I have corrected the figures that she has wrongly used before. I corrected them in February.
