Mr HURFORD (Adelaide) -Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

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


Mr SPEAKER -I should draw to the attention of the honourable gentleman that if he wishes to make a personal explanation he ought to approach the Chair and give an indication of its nature.

Mr HURFORD - I shall do so in future. During an answer to a question today the Treasurer (Mr Lynch) asserted that there had been no attack on economic policies from me during this week, the first week of this parliamentary session. I want to draw to your attention, Mr Speaker, and to his attention that a no confidence motion was moved which he and his colleagues avoided by the subterfuge of an economic statement and refused to debate -

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable gentleman is debating the issue.

Mr HURFORD - I shall just round off by saying that I have also made challenges to the Treasurer in the media to debate economic policy with him, but he has avoided those challenges.
