Senator CARRICK (New South Wales) - I ask for leave to make a personal explanation as I claim to have been misrepresented.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Prowse) - Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator CARRICK - I say at the outset that in no circumstances will I ever wittingly seek to smear any member of this Parliament. I say that emphatically. I suggest that no-one can point to my having done so in the year thai. I have been in the Senate. I direct my remarks now to what was said by Senator Wheeldon. As 1 understand what the honourable senator has said this morning, the stance that Dr Cass and he take on marihuana is that there should be no penalties against its use, that no-one should be penalised for using it and, therefore, that it should be legal. In that sense I understand him to mean that they are advocating the legalising of the use of marihuana and to that extent, I meant that they were advocating marihuana. If there are any other overtones or if I have in any way misrepresented the honourable senator I withdraw such remarks.
