Mr BRYANT (Wills) - I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BRYANT - No. This question arises under standing order 64 which provides that a member may explain matters of a personal nature. I refer to a matter which arose in the House. During the course of question time, the honourable member for Wakefield (Mr Kelly) asked for the distribution of certain material from the Australian Broadcasting Commission. I interjected because, as a member of the Library Committee, I was concerned that the Library's functions were' misunderstood. The Library circulates or has available the transcripts to which the honourable member referred in relation to the programmes Monday Conference' and 'Guest of Honour'. Indeed, the transcript of 'Monday Conference' is circulated to honourable members. 1 am deeply grieved that honourable members have not noticed this fact. I apologise to you, Mr Speaker, for having breached the Standing Orders on this occasion, but I was provoked.
