Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Scholes (CORIO, VICTORIA) - Order! The Minister for Immigration will address the Chair and he will do so only after I have called him. Does the Minister wish to raise a point of order?

Mr Grassby - Yes, Mr Deputy Speaker. My point of order is this: If it is suggested by someone that an honourable member has done something deliberately which is defamatory the honourable member has the right under the Standing Orders to object. The Leader of the Australian Country Party has said that I deliberately performed a confidence trick. That is, of course, wrong and he knows it. It is also objectionable to me. Under the Standing Orders, I ask him to withdraw it.
