Ms MACKLIN (3:20 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Ms MACKLIN —Yes, I do.

Mr SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Ms MACKLIN —I claim to have been misrepresented in question time by the Minister for Health and Aged Care when he questioned Labor's commitment to keep the private health insurance rebate. He deliberately left out from the sentence—

Mr SPEAKER —The member for Jagajaga cannot indicate where the Labor Party has been misrepresented; she can indicate only where she has been personally misrepresented.

Ms MACKLIN —It was about me, Mr Speaker. He deliberately left out from the sentence that he quoted the part that said `but she loyally backs the party policy to retain it'.
