Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Adermann (FISHER, QUEENSLAND) - Order! The honorable member is not permitted to comment. He must confine himself to stating how he has been misrepresented.

Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am simply saying that the honorable member was completely misrepresenting me - for whatever motive - when he declared that I had said it was immoral and wrong in principle and scandalous to have private arrangements for insurance for medical and hospital treatment.

Mr Joske - I rise to give a personal explanation. I, in turn, have been misrepresented by the honorable member for Eden-Monaro. He described private arrangements as immoral. His own statement, which he has just read from' th2 " Hansard " report, shows that he did so do.

Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I wish to make a further personal explanation. I have been misrepresented by the honorable member for Balaclava. He has repeated that I stated that private arrangements for treatment were immoral.

Mr Joske - I did not say that at any stage. I said " private arrangements ", which is what you said. You have just quoted it to us.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The House must come to order. Honorable members have stated their positions.

Mr ALLAN FRASER (EDEN-MONARO, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I have stated, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that the statement of the honorable member for Balaclava is absolutely incorrect, as I have shown from the " Hansard " report.
