Mr BRADBURY (LindsayAssistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation) (15:11): Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER: Does the Assistant Treasurer claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr BRADBURY: Most grievously.

The SPEAKER: The Assistant Treasurer has the call.

Mr BRADBURY: Earlier today in the House the member for North Sydney claimed that I was a friend of Eddie Obeid and implied that I had knowledge of his tax affairs. I wish to put on the record that, to the best of my recollection, I have never met Mr Obeid, nor do I have any knowledge of his tax affairs outside of what has been publicly reported.
