Mr McVEIGH —by leave-I seek leave to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr McVEIGH —Yes, Mr Speaker. In the course of a long-winded, irrelevant, unrelated answer--

Mr SPEAKER —Order! The honourable member for Darling Downs is inviting me to instruct him to be seated. I will allow the honourable member to continue.

Mr McVEIGH —The Minister for Sport, Recreation and Tourism (Mr John Brown) used the words 'inexpertly administered by well meaning amateurs'. When I was Minister for Home Affairs and Environment I personally appointed many of these people. It is an affront to great Australians for these people, who were appointed by me, to be lambasted by him.

Mr SPEAKER —Order! That is not a personal explanation.
