Senator HANNAN (Victoria) - Under standing order 410 I want to correct a misrepresentation which Senator Mulvihill made in respect of a question which 1 asked earlier this afternoon. Senator Mulvihill said that I had described Mr Jurjevic in my question. That is simply untrue. I referred to him by name without any description whatsoever, although at this stage I inform Senator Mulvihill that in the near future I may be compelled to describe the person with accuracy and at length.

Senator Willesee - I take a point of order. Senator Hannan has quoted standing order 410; therefore, he has read it. The last 2 lines of that standing order read:

.   . Mr Acting President, that the honourable senator has made his explanation. He has pointed out that he gave no description of the gentleman named. That,

I suggest, is the personal explanation. The honourable senator has made it clear to the Senate how he feels he has been misrepresented. If he continues he is clearly in defiance of standing order 410, and I suggest, Mr Acting President, that you should rule accordingly.

Senator HANNAN - I am happy to withdraw the last sentence.
