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

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

Mr KERR —Yes.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr KERR —The Minister for Veterans' Affairs, in her additional comments to the answer she provided in response to the question I asked, referred to a Hansard transcript and chastised me for omitting a particular reference. The inference normally going with `omitting' is that there is something in a document that is not referred to. I merely plead guilty to omitting to refer to a fact not contained in the document.

The SPEAKER —It is a dubious personal explanation, but it is now on the record.
