Mr SCHULTZ (Hume) (15:33): Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr SCHULTZ: Yes.

The SPEAKER: Please proceed.

Mr SCHULTZ: On 10 August this year in the upper house of the New South Wales parliament a question was put by the Hon. Mick Veitch MLC to the Minister for Roads and Ports, the Hon. Duncan Gay. The question involved my contribution to the issue of wind farms.

During the latter part of the reply from the Hon. Duncan Gay he said:

I have to acknowledge that life has dealt Alby a tough hand. For him some days are really difficult and one of the toughest for him was the day that I, as chairman of the National Party, rejected his application to become a member of the National Party. He has had a lot of trouble getting over that, and some of his statements should be taken bearing in mind that rejection.

Those of this House who know me well know that that is an outrageous lie, and it is misleading the New South Wales parliament. I totally reject it because hell has not yet frozen over.
