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

Mr KATTER - Yes, as a matter of fact 1 do, by the Prime Minister (Mr Whitlam) by inference. The Prime Minister, in sidestepping the question asked by the Leader of the Country Party (Mr Anthony) in regard to the painting, 'Blue Poles', implied that I did not have an artistic temperament. I point out that one of my closest friends is Hugh Sawry who is perhaps Australia's most outstanding artist. I recently had the pleasure of opening an art exhibition in Brisbane and I am informed that a local artist recently completed a work and that I have been 'hanged' with Ned Kelly on the wall of the entrance to the Cloncurry Shire Chambers.
