Mr BRIGGS (3:30 PM) —Mr Speaker, I seek to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BRIGGS —I do.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr BRIGGS —In answer to a question, the Minister for Financial Services and Regulation misrepresented me by partially quoting something I said this morning on the Sky News Agenda program suggesting I was pleased to see jobs placed at risk with Ruddbank being stopped in the Senate. In fact what I said on the program was that coming from South Australia, a state sent broke by Labor bankers, we were pleased to prevent Labor getting back into banking.
