Mr BEAZLEY (3:34 PM) —Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation.


The SPEAKER —Does the member for Brand claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr BEAZLEY —I do.


The SPEAKER —The member for Brand may proceed.


Mr BEAZLEY —I claim to have been misrepresented by the Minister for Foreign Affairs in question time today. The foreign minister implied that last night, in a speech, I advocated a larger Australian contingent in Iraq. I did not. What I wondered, given the level of government rhetoric, is why they did not.
