Mr ABBOTT (WarringahLeader of the Opposition) (15:13): Madam Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr ABBOTT: I do.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr ABBOTT: In question time today the Leader of the House referred to an email from Nolan's Transport. There was in fact a dodgy email circulating about Nolan's Transport. It did not come from me and the minister should not suggest that it did. As it happens, Nolan's Transport hates the carbon tax, which will cost them $300,000—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition will resume his seat! He needs to indicate where he has been misrepresented. The Leader of the Opposition has the call.

Mr ABBOTT: The Leader of the House further suggested in question time today that I had been banned from Norsk Hydro on the weekend. This is also false and they have made it clear to me that I am welcome to visit at any time.
