Mr NIXON (Gippsland) (Minister for the Interior) - Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

Mr SPEAKER -Does the Minister claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr NIXON - Yes. I do not want to be unparliamentary in this but the Leader of the Opposition, in his usual extravagant fashion, apparently did not hear me reply during question time this morning-

Mr Bryant - I rise on a point of order, Mr Speaker. The question of persona] explanations came up earlier-

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member will resume his seat. I suggest to the Minister that he will not debate the question and that he will explain to the House where he personally has been misrepresented.

Mr NIXON - I was in my office in May. I said so at question time this morning. The Leader of the Opposition is either deaf or does not want to hear.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be added (Dr Cairn's amendment) be so added.

Suggest corrections
