Mr ERWIN (Ballaarat) - I should like to move an extension of time for the Minister to enable him to answer my 2 questions. 1. move:

That an extension of time be granted to the Minister for Housing.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Berinson)Thequestion is that an extension of time be granted to the Minister for Housing. Those of that opinion say aye, and to the contrary no. I think the noes have it. The question is resolved in the negative.

Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am not quite sure what point the honourable member for Ballaarat-

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER -Order! I understand that the Minister voted against the motion. If he is in favour of the motion I will declare that the ayes have it.

Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I think, in all modesty, I will vote against it.

Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - My original ruling stands.

Mr DONALDCAMERON (Griffith) - I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - I do. I do not suggest for a moment that it was intentional but I think that the Minister for Housing (Mr Les Johnson) has misunderstood my reference to $400m. I did not say it was a yearly expenditure, f was referring to it as a total commitment.

Mr McLeay - For all those in the forces at the moment?

Mr Donald Cameron (GRIFFITH, QUEENSLAND) - Yes.
