Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr WEBB - Yes, grievously. The honourable member for Mallee (Mr Turnbull) took me to task for some interjection I made in regard to the presenting of flags to schools. My only interjection was that when presenting flags to schools we do not now also present a certificate from the Prime Minister of Australia. Perhaps this is because there have been too many changes in the position of prime minister. I think the practice of giving a certificate from the Prime Minister when presenting flags to schools should be reintroduced.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member cannot debate the matter.


Mr WEBB - I am not debating the matter. I am asking that this practice should be restored, and I ask the honourable member to apologise.

Mr TURNBULL(Mallee) - I wish to make a personal explanation.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr TURNBULL - Yes. I did say something about the honourable member fox Stirling interjecting all the time.


Mr Webb - That is not right.


Mr TURNBULL - Well, most of the time. As a matter of fact it was the hilarity of honourable members on my right in this chamber when I was stressing the importance of Anzac and patriotism, that I took exception to.
