Mr HODGMAN —Madam Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr HODGMAN —I do.


Madam SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Mr HODGMAN —In the Canberra Times of 26 May last and in a number of other newspapers I have been seriously misrepresented by reports that Australia's leading country and western singer, Slim Dusty, had given permission to the Australian Labor Party to rewrite the classic song I'd love to have a beer with Duncan to use against me in the campaign for the Federal seat of Denison. It is my duty to inform the House that I have been advised that neither the great Slim Dusty nor EMI records has given any permission whatsoever.
