Mr SPEAKER - Does the Leader of the Opposition claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr WHITLAM - Yes. The honourable member for Balaclava based his question, and the Minister based his reply, on a report of a speech I made a week ago to the Hanimex Group's Tenth Product Advisory Council. The words I used were:

Employers would be committing a great folly if they believed their interests would be served by a confrontation with employees. The only people who are really pushing this idea of a show-down are governments who are themselves the worst employers, with the worst industrial records. . . We are all - government, employers, employees-entering unfamiliar, frequently unknown waters. We will achieve nothing on the basis of confrontation and division.
