Ms KERNOT (4:48 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Ms KERNOT —Yes.


Mr SPEAKER —Please proceed.


Ms KERNOT —I have two matters, the first one being the minister's assertion that I supported the Manusafe scheme. I quote from my words:

No, we don't, because it is only for one industry. We are still pushing for our national scheme, and that is a 0.1 per cent levy added to the superannuation guarantee charge.

On the second point, the minister's assertion that I supported an illegal strike, I wish to add to the incomplete quotation he used:

... and they are only striking in a period in which legislation allows them to—a fixed term for enterprise bargaining.


Mr SPEAKER —I am happy to hear from the Leader of the House if he wishes.

Government members interjecting

Opposition members interjecting—


Mr SPEAKER —Order! I would remind all members of the House of their status in the House.
