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

Mr DAVIES - Yes. The 'Examiner' newspaper of yesterday's date, 22 October 1973, contains a letter from an A. G. Rockliff of Forest, Tasmania, in which he states:

At an ALP meeting at Burnie on October 16th, 1968, Mr Davies stated that dairymen would lose their subsidy if a Federal Labor Government was elected.

I have checked my attendance in this House and I find that on page 2046 of Hansard of 16 October 1968 I am recorded as a teller in a division that took place at approximately 10.45 p.m. on that day. This is a clear indication that I could not have attended the meeting referred to, which supposedly was held on the same night in Burnie, as was stated by A. G. Rockliff. I have requested my solicitor to take the necessary legal action.
