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

Mr SHIPTON -I claim to have been misrepresented by the honourable member for Burke (Mr Keith Johnson) who has just resumed his seat. He claimed that in my speech I talked about the Medibank levy and, I think, the effect of the consumer price index. I did no such thing. He stated that I was not completely honest. I resent that. I claim that I spoke the truth. He referred to the word 'establishment'. I would say that he speaks on behalf of an establishment- that group of union officials who on occasions hold the Australian economy to ransom.
