Mr JESS (La Trobe) - Mr Speaker, 1 wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr JESS - Yes. Last night during the adjournment debate the honourable member for Wills (Mr Bryant) concluded his address by saying - and I overlooked this at the time:

.   . 1 believe the establishment of foreign bases in this country and the alienation of our territory to another country is a piece of national treachery. And the honourable member for La Trobe is one of the guilty parties.

I do not agree that I am treacherous to my country. I believe that as yet we are not able to stand on our own 2 feet and that if we have an alliance we must stand by it.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable member shall not debate the question.
