Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Does the honorable member claim- to have been misrepresented?

Mr Turnbull - Yes, by the honorable member for Bonython. Earlier this afternoon I made a speech, and as honorable members know, the honorable member for Bonython has just concluded his remarks. During my speech I advocated that TransAustralian Airlines should be allowed to provide an intra-state service. I stated that I had received a letter asking that the Federal Government should legislate to provide for this. I added, " Of course, we all know that the States have to legislate". Now the honorable member says I should have supported a certain measure that the Opposition brought forward that would have allowed the intra-state airlines to operate. I am surprised at that suggestion, for the honorable member knows that nothing that could be brought forward in this Parliament by the Opposition, or by the Government, could achieve that end. It is a State matter, and I said so. Yet he tries to twist it round to make out that it is actually a federal matter, because all the time he is smarting under my opposition to nationalization.
