Mr GRASSBY (Riverina) - Mr Deputy Speaker.I wish to make a personal explanation. I crave the indulgence of the House but this is the first opportunity I have had to raise this matter.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Lucock)Doesthe honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr GRASSBY - Yes. The honourable member for Angas (Mr Giles) said in his remarks earlier that on my recent visit to South Australia I had hidden the Opposition's wheat policy by subterfuge and by pulling legs, to quote him. That is untrue. On every occasion I have made it clear that the Opposition favours a national quota, a 2-pool system, and a basic quota for family farms to ensure their viability, and not to give grace and favour to corporations as is the case at present.
