Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The Minister has a perfect right to make a personal explanation.

Mr J R FRASER - Did the Minister claim that he had been misrepresented?

Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) - It is quite clear that, if a completely false allegation has been made about me, I have been misrepresented. 1 claim that I have been misrepresented. I have said that the statement made by the honorable member for East Sydney was completely untrue. No such instruction was given by me, or was intended to be given by me at any time. 1 suggest that a test of the sincerity of the honorable gentleman is that neither he nor any other member of that committee approached me at any time for any official information relating to building industry statistics.
