Mr HURFORD (Adelaide) -I seek leave to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr HURFORD - Yes.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -He may proceed.


Mr HURFORD - I was misrepresented by the honourable member for Kingston (Mr Chapman) when he claimed that in the course of my remarks I said that he was not interested in this industry. I said no such thing. In fact, I am on record as calling him the member for not only Kingston but also the Chrysler bosses. I know that he takes an interest in the industry.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member has made his point.


Mr HURFORD - I go further and say that in the course of my remarks, when I was noting that the industry is in decline and that the Government is not doing sufficient about it, the honourable member was interjecting and saying that this is not so. That is when I turned on him and complained that he was not recognising, as the Australian Labor Party recognises, that not only this industry but also the whole economy of the country is in decline.
