Mr HODGMAN —Mr Deputy Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Rocher) —Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr HODGMAN —Yes. I have been misrepresented by the present honourable member for Tangney (Mr Gear), who made a very slighting reference about my constituents. I ask him to apologise to the Tasmanian Pensioners Union, Kingston Branch, of which I am the honorary legal adviser, and to all the other pensioners in Australia whom he insulted during his disgraceful speech.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —Order! That is not a personal explanation.

Mr Gear —Mr Deputy Speaker, I raise a point of order. I do not apologise to anyone. I stand by my statement.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —There is no point of order.
