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

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

Mr ALDRED —Yes, I do.

Mr SPEAKER —The honourable member may proceed.

Mr ALDRED —Last night in the adjournment debate I made a speech concerning allegations of maladministration and violence in the Oakleigh City Council. That speech was reported this morning in the Melbourne Sun on page 13. The report is correct in all respects except one paragraph, which reads:

Mr Aldred said the 1984-85 Federal Budget allocated $486,534 in local government funding and the Victorian Grants Commission had authorised $958,000 to Oakleigh Council.

In actual fact I said in my speech-it is so recorded in Hansard-that the total amount of local government funding for 1984-85 out of the Commonwealth Budget for that category is $486.534m. In verification of that and all the other matters that I dealt with last night, I seek leave again to table the Blue Book-

Mr SPEAKER —Order! The honourable member has been given indulgence to make a personal explanation about where he has been misrepresented. He has done so. He is not entitled to raise other matters.
