Mr SIMMONS —Mr Deputy Speaker, I claim to have been misrepresented.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER —The honourable member may proceed.

Mr SIMMONS —The honourable member for Darling Downs (Mr McVeigh), in the course of his comments on the Live-stock Slaughter (Export Inspection Charge) Validation Bill, indicated that I was not interested in the problems of the Blayney abattoir because I was not in the chamber during his speech. I assure the House that I am most interested in the future of the Blayney abattoir. I have had numerous discussions with the chairman, councillors and management of the abattoir on a regular basis. I reject totally his mischeivous comments, which have been clearly designed just to make cheap political capital.
