Mr DALY (Grayndler) (Minister for Services and Property) - I wish to make a personal explanation.


Mr ACTING SPEAKER -Does the Minister claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr DALY - Yes. The honourable member for Curtin (Mr Garland) stated that I said he had voted against a motion for the extension of the sitting times of the House. The statement I made stands because the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr Lynch), on behalf of the Opposition, opposed the extension of sitting hours for a short time each day, and I understand that the honourable member for Curtin is still a loyal member of the Opposition. Consequently he was linked with the rest of his colleagues in voting against an extension of the sitting times of the House.

Mr GARLAND(Curtin) - I wish to make a further personal explanation.


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


Mr GARLAND - I have been further misrepresented. I made it perfectly clear in my personal explanation a few moments ago and last Thursday that I sought adequate time for the debate of these matters and that the motion to which the Leader of the House (Mr Daly) was referring has had the result of cutting down Committee consideration of important matters.
