Mr ANTHONY (Richmond) (Leader of the Australian Country Party) - Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr ANTHONY - Yes. I do not appreciate the reflections that have been made on people who may have provided me with information as to what the intentions of the present Government are to try to reduce the price of meat.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! If the right honourable member is making a personal application he must say where he has been misrepresented.

Mr ANTHONY - What the honourable member for Eden-Monaro is saying by innuendo is that certain people have provided me with information-

Mr SPEAKER - Order! The right honourable gentleman is out of order. He must explain where he has been misrepresented personally.

Mr ANTHONY - I have been misrepresented because the honourable member for

Eden-Monaro said that I obtained information illegally and that I did not have the right to use it. As a principal member of the Opposition I have every right to expose the actions of this Government which I believe are against the national interest, and I will continue to do it whenever possible.

Mr SPEAKER -In regard to the personal explanation, the honourable member for EdenMonaro did not specifically name the Leader of the Country Party.
