Mr NIXON (Gippsland) - Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr NIXON - Yes. I appreciate what the Minister for Transport (Mr Charles Jones) has said and thank him for making a clarification of the statement he made yesterday. One point of difference still remains. Last year the Minister for Transport, shadow minister as he then was, said to me that I could during the course of the debate on a matter of public importance use a Tariff Board report that I wished to table. I requested leave to make a separate statement on the Tariff Board report. He said: 'No. You can use the Tariff Board report during the course of the debate.' I think that if the Minister reads his speech on that matter of public importance he will see that he referred to that fact.
