Mr SPEAKER -Order! Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?


Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I do. During question time the Minister for Housing (Mr Kevin Cairns) in an attempt to justify his inaction about the trend of rising housing prices claimed that members were not directing questions to him about the administration of his Department. I would like to say that several members, including myself, have questions on the notice paper at the present time. I have 5 questions on the notice paper addressed to the Minister.


Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member will say where he has been personally misrepresented. He will not debate the question.


Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The point is that the Minister for Housing claimed that I personally had not questioned him about the administration of his Department, or words to that effect. I make the point that I have had many questions answered by the Minister during the current session and that at this moment I have 5 questions on the notice paper directed to him about housing, several of them specifically on the point of housing costs.
