Mr MacKELLAR (Warringah) - Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation.

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

Mr MacKELLAR - Yes. The Deputy Prime Minister (Mr Barnard) said that 2 was basing my question on insinuations or making insinuations. I based my question on a statutory declaration made by a man named Dell, a former member of the Labor Party. It is a public statutory declaration which involves the Deputy Prime Minister. If he would like me to quote the section of the statutory declaration which involves him I will do so.

Mr SPEAKER -Order! I do not think it is necessary to do that. I am not trying to stifle discussion on this matter. In making a pesonal explanation, the honourable member must say where he has been misrepresented. He has made the point that he was quoting from an affidavit. That is accepted as a point of misrepresentation.

Mr MacKELLAR - It did involve the Deputy Prime Minister. I am very pleased to hear from the Deputy Prime Minister that he has co-operated with the investigation which, I take it, is a closed one. I have not seen any public statement by the Deputy Prime Minister about that-

Mr SPEAKER -Order! The honourable gentleman has made his point.
