Mr TURNBULL (Leader of the Opposition) (3:44 PM) —Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr TURNBULL —Yes, grievously.

The SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr TURNBULL —In the course of question time today, the Minister for Finance and Deregulation asserted—not for the first time—that I had never commented on the issue of excessive executive salaries. In fact, I have spoken about this at great length on a number of occasions. I have four recent examples here and there are many more. Unlike the finance minister, I have taken action to stop executives excessively remunerating themselves. I seek leave to table these transcripts. Will the government consent to that?

Mr Albanese interjecting

Mr TURNBULL —Very well. You don’t want to know the facts, do you?

The SPEAKER —Order! The Leader of the Opposition is seeking leave to table transcripts. Is leave granted?

Leave not granted.
