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

Mr KATTER - Yes. I claim to have been misrepresented in relation to actions taken last year in my capacity as Minister for the Army. Reference was made today to the transfer of a drill hall from Ashfield. I might explain that this action was the subject of very profound investigation and a decision taken between the then Minister for the Interior, and more particularly the then Minister for the Navy, and myself. It culminated in a very large scale discussion and conference at the Ashfield High School where I was able to announce a decision taken to transfer a drill hall from Ashfield High School area without delay. I think that the whole situation has been misrepresented here today by the Minister for Services and Property (Mr Daly) in the particularly distorted account he gave of the occurence.
