Mr McVEIGH —I wish to make a personal explanation.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Mountford) —Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr McVEIGH —Yes. I claim to have been misrepresented. In the course of the speech made by the Minister for Primary Industry (Mr Kerin)-I have to give honourable members a little bit of a preamble to develop the point-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —No, just make your personal explanation.

Mr McVEIGH —The Minister indicated that, as far as wheat was concerned, charges for contracts entered into prior to 1 October would attract the lower rate. I asked: 'Would that also apply to meat, edible oils, seeds and eggs'? He just glossed over it. I am wondering whether he is suffering from amnesia. I would like a reply.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —I fail to see any misrepresentation.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be omitted (Mr McVeigh's amendment) stand part of the question.
