Mr WATSON (Bland) -Idonot wish to imply, and I do not think I did imply the other evening, that the honorable member was attempting to deliberately misrepresent what I had said. In regard to the quotation which has just been read, I desire to say that it is not a correct report of what I said on the occasion referred to. I believe that the report - I have not had time to ascertain definitely - is a reproduction of a very much condensed report published in the daily newspapers, and it does not correctly record all that I stated. I have stated on many occasions that Socialism certainly does aim at what is there indicated, but I have not said that the objective of the Labour Party, so far as it is expressed, aims at anything of the kind.


Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - According to the report, the honorable member said that.


Mr WATSON - I did not say, on the occasion referred to, what the Worker represents. The report is very much condensed. My speech extended over about two hours, and the report of my remarks has been condensed into a very short space, and, necessarily, is not quite accurate.
