Mr RUDDOCK —Mr Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon. Les Johnson) —Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr RUDDOCK —Yes. The Minister for Employment and Industrial Relations (Mr Willis ) in his reply suggested that I had said that in the area of public sector activity there was no role for arbitration or arbitral tribunals. While I have sent my notes to Hansard, my recollection is that I qualified that reference by specific mention of the circumstances contained in each of these Bills. Certainly it was not my intention to suggest that there was no role for arbitral tribunals in the public sector area generally.

Question put:

That the Bill be now read a second time.
