Dr GUN (Kingston) - Mr Deputy Speaker,1 wish to support the motion of dissent from your ruling moved by the honourable member for Blaxland (Mr Keating). In seeking to make a personal explanation, the honourable member for Deakin (Mr Jarman) discussed motives that were attributed to him by the honourable member for Grayndler (Mr Daly). You - correctly, I believe - permitted the honourable member to make a personal explanation as to why he was outside at that demonstration. The honourable member for Prospect (Dr Klugman) and the honourable member for Reid (Mr Uren) were out there also. They sought to make personal explanations too as to why they were there and to point out that the motives attributed to them by the honourable member for Deakin, when he was stating what he thought the philosophies of the audience were, were not correct. You did state also that the honourable member for Prospect was not entitled to make a personal explanation because when he was outside the House listening to the Moratorium discussion he was not a member of the House. I point out that the honourable member for Deakin was not a member of the House either. In fact, Mr Arthur is not a member of this House at all and the honourable member for Deakin was making a personal explanation on his behalf as well.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock -Order! When I told the honourable member for Prospect that he was not entitled to make a personal explanation, I did not state that he was not a member of this House when he went outside. I stated that the statement made by the honourable member for Deakin was a general statement concerning people at a meeting, and that the honourable member for Prospect had not been misrepresented by an honourable member in this House. The reason why the honourable member for Prospect was not allowed to make a personal explanation, is that he was not in the House at the time in question.
