Mr GRASSBY (Riverina) - I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr GRASSBY - Yes. In the course of a reply to a question the Minister for Primary Industry said that members of the Opposition in a debate on the wool subsidy scheme had opposed assistance to studs.

Mr Armitage - Studs?

Mr GRASSBY - Yes, to merino studs particularly. In the course of my submission to the House on that occasion I made a specific appeal for the continuation of private merino studs, and this was rejected. To suggest that members of the Opposition - and I was the second speaker on that occasion - had done otherwise is completely wrong and the Minister should apologise.
