Mr McVEIGH —Mr Speaker, I seek leave to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr McVEIGH —Yes, Mr Speaker.

Mr SPEAKER —The honourable member may proceed.

Mr McVEIGH —In answer to a dorothy dix question today, the Prime Minister (Mr Hawke) attributed to me certain statements that I was supposed to have made at a Federal National Party of Australia council meeting in Sydney. I advise you, Mr Speaker, that no such meeting was held in Sydney. Unlike the Prime Minister, I am not God and I cannot attend a meeting that was not held in Sydney.

Mr Hawke —Did you make the statement?

Mr McVEIGH —Yes, but not in Sydney.
