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

Mr KEATING - Yes, I claim to have been misrepresented in yesterday's Melbourne Age'. I was misrepresented in an article mentioning me and the honourable member for Adelaide (Mr Hurford) in relation to an inquiry into the Commonwealth Public Service. The article was written in very extravagant terms. There were disparaging references to the Chairman of the Public Service Board. I have not given an interview to any reporter from the Melbourne 'Age' and I cannot recall ever having spoken to anyone from that newspaper. While I have expressed some criticism of the organisation of the Public Service under the Public Service Act I have never referred to any personalities involved in the machinery of the Service. In fact, I have a high regard for most of the officers at management level of the Service.
