Mr BRIAN MITCHELL (Lyons) (15:11): [by video link] Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr BRIAN MITCHELL: I do.

The SPEAKER: You may proceed.

Mr BRIAN MITCHELL: Thank you, Mr Speaker. In yesterday's MPI the member for Lyne accused myself and other members of hypocrisy for criticising the BBRF while welcoming projects in our own electorates. My criticism went to the fact that 90 per cent of the grant money under the scheme went to coalition seats. That's a fact illustrated by my seat receiving $4 million and Mallee receiving $38 million, which is about on point. So far from hypocrisy, it's simply fact and truth.
