Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Has the honorable member been misrepresented in the House?

Mr Fuller - Yes.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Then he does not need to have leave.

Mr Fuller - My personal explanation arises out of a question that was asked by the honorable member for Reid (Mr. Lang), in which he implied that I had received some financial assistance from a broadcasting network during the last Commonwealth election campaign. All that I want to say about that allegation is that it was totally untrue. I have never received any financial assistance from any broadcasting station or from any other source whatever. I have paid for my election campaigns out of my own expenses. It was another filthy suggestion of the kind that the honorable member made some time ago when he implied, in connexion with my personal affairs and my business at Tumut, that he had gone to Tumut to give me financial assistance for my business. That suggestion also was totally untrue. Never at any time did the honorable member for Reid attempt to give me any assistance in my business at Tumut. The allegations were entirely without foundation.
