Ms ELLIS (5:04 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Ms ELLIS —Yes, I do, grievously.

Mr SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Ms ELLIS —In a media release issued yesterday, 20 June, by the Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts, the minister included what he claimed was a quote from me concerning funding for the ABC. It was a selective quote by the minister which totally misrepresented what I actually said. The minister's statement was a monstrous misrepresentation of my remarks.
