Mr BOURCHIER (Bendigo) - Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

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


Mr Leo McLeay (GRAYNDLER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Impossible.

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member for Bendigo will resume his seat. The honourable member for Grayndler has not been here long but I assure him that it is the practice of the House to listen to personal explanations in silence.

Mr BOURCHIER - Mr Speaker,you have ruled often that when honourable members interject, that interjection is included in Hansard if it is acknowledged by the person to whom it is made. I refer you to page 593 of Hansard when the honourable member for Corio (Mr Scholes) was called by you after saying that he wished to be heard. He then made some rather spurious remarks about me. I feel sure that you would agree that if I made an interjection and he felt it was somewhat hurtful, it should have been included. I merely said: 'Here comes the expert, and we all know that an expert is a drip under pressure'.
