Senator GUILFOYLE (Victoria) -I wish briefly to take advantage of standing order 410 as I claim that the remarks I made in relation to Part V of the Bill have been misunderstood. I was the Opposition speaker who stressed our point of view with regard to this part of the legislation. I would like to convey to Senator Hall that the remarks which he made with regard to our seeking uniformity of State legislation in no way express the attitudes which I put forward last night on behalf of the Opposition. The main object of my point of view and of the Opposition 's point of view with regard to consumer legislation was to stress the diversity of State legislation which is required to deal with commercial practices within the State. To talk of his attitude being based on our seeking uniformity and the urgency which is required misrepresented the remarks which I made last night.

Senator STEELEHALL (South AustraliaLeader of the Liberal Movement)-Under standing order 410 I would like to explain, further to the remarks of Senator Wood -

The PRESIDENT -Standing order 410 states that no debatable matter shall be brought forward or debate arise upon such explanation. I will have to confine remarks to the strict letter and spirit of the standing order. I would like Senator Hall to confine himself to pointing out where he has been misquoted or misunderstood.

Senator STEELE HALL -Thank you, I do so. Senator Wood said that I had called members on his side of the House nincompoops and small fry. That statement would appear m Hansard and therefore I think I should correct it. I have never called them that publicly; I have only inferred it.
