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

Mr INNES - Yes. During the debate which has just concluded the honourable member for St George (Mr Neil) and the honourable member for Higgins (Mr Shipton) referred to my criticising in my speech the concept of the extended family. That was a completely erroneous assertion to make, as Hansard will bear out. What I said was that the principle of the extended family was the basis on which the Minister at the time had raised the expectations of the Lebanese people. I went on to say that I agreed that the principle was not out of order. In fact, I sup- ported the contention of the extended family. All suggested was that, the Minister having raised the expectation, the machinery should have been provided for the purpose of carrying that out.
