Mr SCHOLES (Corio) - Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr SCHOLES - Yes. The honourable member for Wannon during his remarks said that I had advocated and was actively supporting action to close the port of Portland. That statement is totally untrue. If the honourable member had taken the trouble to examine the remarks I made in this House only yesterday he would be aware that his remarks were untrue. What I have said is that there is no advantage to the port of Portland in deliberately advocating policies which could close both the port of Portland and the port of Geelong. That is what the honourable member has done.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! It being 11 p.m., in accordance with the order of the House, the House stands adjourned until 10 a.m. on Thursday, 29th March 1973.
