Mr ABBOTT (3:44 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr ABBOTT —Most grievously.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr ABBOTT —In answering a question today the Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs claimed that members of the opposition were against the social security agreements negotiated with various countries around the world. This is absolutely untrue. We are against the government’s stimulus package but we are not against those agreements.
