Mr Peter Johnson (BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND) -Mr Deputy Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Dr Jenkins -Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr Peter Johnson (BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND) -I do. The honourable member for Shortland (Mr Morris) stated that an incident probably happened, involving me and a security check, at an airport. This has never happened. Never has there been a stopwork at a security check. Every time I have approached a security check I have realised the importance of it and I have been quite willing to have my baggage examined, as has everybody else. That is the only way I approach it. I consider that that sort of political smear tactic on the last day of the Parliament is something that should be above the honourable member for Shortland.

Mr MORRIS(Shortland)-Mr Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.
