Mr SPEAKER - The honourable gentleman cannot seek leave to make a personal explanation. He can seek leave to make a statement.

Mr GILES - I seek leave to make a statement.

Mr SPEAKER - Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Mr GILES - Yesterday I was informed that the Postmaster-General (Mr Lionel Bowen) had not accepted a request to receive a deputation from the Australian Provincial Press Association. I said so in a speech that I made last night. I have now been informed by the President of the APPA that this is incorrect and that the Postmaster-General has reacted to their request. I have already apologised to the Postmaster-General and I would like to put the record straight by making this statement to the House.

Suggest corrections
