Mr RUDD (4:16 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr RUDD —Yes.


Mr SPEAKER —The member for Griffith may proceed.


Mr RUDD —Yesterday, Karen Middleton, in an interview with my colleague the member for Kingsford-Smith, said:

... you talk about not wanting a military based relationship with Indonesia, I think your friend and colleague Kevin Rudd suggests that we should have more of the same sorts of relationship that we had under the Hawke and Keating governments.

The record demonstrates that I have never stated the return to either a Hawke or a Keating approach as an appropriate basis for the management of Australia's future relationship with Jakarta.
