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

Mr JEFF BATE - Yes, Mr. Speaker. Last night I was misrepresented by the honorable member for Eden-Monaro (Mr. Allan Fraser) in a number of ways; but I think I should direct attention to one particular misrepresentation. " Hansard " will show that I quoted from paragraph 914 of the report of the committee which recently inquired into the dairying industry. In that report, the committee stated that there was no longer a " cow cocky " or a " Dad and Dave " atmosphere in the dairying industry. The honorable member for Eden-Monaro said that I had called the people in the dairying industry by those names, which would be offensive to them. I would like to state, to clear the record, that I read from a paragraph of the report. The paragraph stands as the record of what I said. The honorable member for Eden-Monaro flagrantly misrepresented what I said, and that is in keeping with his tactics.
