Mr KERIN (Werriwa) -Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

Mr SPEAKER - If the honourable gentleman claims to have been misrepresented, he may proceed.

Mr KERIN - Thank you, Mr Speaker. My attention has been drawn to the fourth edition, January 1980, of a private document in the Parliamentary Library entitled Federal Government

Guide 1980.The editors were Jonathan Gaul and Susan Grant. In itemising all the names of the members of the House of Representatives in alphabetical order my name has been left out completely. To add insult to injury, the item which starts 'McLeay, Leo Boyce, Member for Grayndler since 23.6.1979', nearly a year after I was re-elected to this House, states:

He was elected at a by-election following the retirement of Gough Whitlam.

I think that is incorrect.

Dr Klugman - The accuracy is the usual accuracy of people who work for the Government.

Mr SPEAKER -The honourable member for Prospect will remain silent. As I understand the matter, it is not a government publication.


Dr Klugman - They work for the Government. They get kick-backs.

Mr SPEAKER -The honourable member for Prospect will remain silent.

Mr KERIN - I advise any member of the public seeking a guide to the Federal Government to stick to official publications.
