Mr Daly (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I ask for leave to make a personal explanation arising out of what the honourable member has just said.

Mr Daly - It is on the same subject, yes.

Mr Daly - I have listened to the honourable member's explanation. I am speaking from memory now but what I say is correct. If the honourable member checks Hansard he will see that 1 did not say that he listed Mr John Ryan but that he mentioned that everybody supporting the Moratorium was either a Communist or a Communist sympathiser. I posed the question: Does the honourable member include Mr John Ryan, the Melbourne " Catholic Worker " and a number of other members?' In other words, my statement was that he inferred that Mr John Ryan also was a supporter of the Communist cause, not that he listed him in his speech but that he was including him with me and other members who supported the Moratorium as Communist sympathisers. That is totally different to what he has just said.

Mr McLeay - No - yes, further misrepresented certainly. I was intending to reiterate what I said previously.

Mr McLeay - I most definitely claim to have been misrepresented. It seems to me that the honourable member for Grayndler does not read his copies of Hansard at all. I suggest that he read them because I have been seriously misrepresented. I repeat, without going through it all, what I have just said.

Suggest corrections
