Mr FITZGIBBON (Hunter) (15:13): Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER: You have the call.

Mr FITZGIBBON: During question time today the Minister for Agriculture claimed that I as the responsible minister at the time failed to take an agriculture policy to the last election. The best way within the standing orders, and to be very quick, that I can rule this out as being true is just to refer to the National Farmers' Federation 2013 Election Policy Scorecard, which assessed the policies of the major political parties: Liberal National Party 7½; Labor 8.
