Mr DALY (Grayndler) - Mr Speaker,I desire to make a personal explanation as I feel that I have done an injustice to some members of the Government party.

Mr Gorton - Mr Speaker, I do not think anybody on the Government side would take any notice of anything the honourable member said and therefore no personal explanation is necessary.

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member for Grayndler, in accordance with practice, came to me and informed me about his personal explanation prior to seeking to make it. The honourable member for Grayndler will be in order in making the personal explanation.

Mr DALY - I thank you, Mr Speaker. With due deference to the Prime Minister, members of his Party did take notice of this and that is why I want to make the explanation today. During a debate in the Parliament on 4th September I referred to certain members of the Liberal Party and said:

Young Turks of the Liberal Party are the present-day vanguard of the movement towards Nazism in Australia.

On reflection I realised the gravity of this statement which I made in the heat of debate. I regret and withdraw the imputation against the members concerned.
