Ms JULIE BISHOP (CurtinDeputy Leader of the Opposition) (20:26): I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms K Livermore ): Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Ms JULIE BISHOP: Yes, I do, in a couple of respects.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member for Curtin has the call.

Ms JULIE BISHOP: In question time today the Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities stated that I had deleted a link to an article about my support for marine parks and somehow I was trying to hide that fact. Firstly, I have supported community engagement in the process of determining marine parks since the Howard government began the process in 2006 and I specifically called for a formulation that balances the interests of all stakeholders. Secondly, I have not deleted the article. It has been on my website since 2009. It is still there—one click away from my homepage. The minister's detective skills are not up to those of Inspector Clouseau.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member has shown where she has been misrepresented.
