Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) - Mr Speaker,I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr WENTWORTH - Yes. What the honourable member for Cook (Mr Thorburn) says is true but it is not relevant. The payments to which he referred were ordinary payments which were made to the Warringah Shire Council and to other councils. The only point 1 make is that no ministerial preference was given by me to a council in my own area. The payments were made but other councils received them also.
