Mr RUDDOCK (Dundas) -Mr Deputy Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.


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


Mr RUDDOCK -Most certainly, Mr Deputy Speaker. During the debate which has just concluded the honourable member for Port Adelaide (Mr Young) waved in my direction and said: 'You are all lining your pockets from your farms and your mines'. I want to make it clear that I own no mine and no farm. In relation to me -


Mr Young - I raise a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. You should not allow personal explanations in respect of collective accusations. That is the ruling from the Chair.


Mr Deputy SPEAKER -The honourable member is quite correct. He anticipated my ruling by a split second. The honourable member for Dundas will resume his seat.


Mr Ruddock - On a point of order -


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! If the House comes to order it will facilitate the proceedings ofthe House.


Mr Ruddock - A point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. As I made quite clear, the honourable member for Port Adelaide waved in my direction as he made his remark. If he cannot be believed in relation to me I do not know how he can be believed in relation to anybody else.


Mr Neil -I rise to a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. The honourable member for Port Adelaide just made a vulgar gesture towards the honourable member for Dundas. I ask that this vulgar oaf apologise to the House and to the Chair.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! Over the last day or two, possibly, the House has engaged in everything but pointing the bone. I think we might let the matter rest.
