Senator STEELE' HALL (South Australia) (Leader of the Liberal Movement) - Mr President,I claim to have been misrepresented.

The PRESIDENT -Standing order 410 states:

A Senator who has spoken to a Question may again be heard, to explain himself in regard to some material part of his speech which has been misquoted or misunderstood, but shall not introduce any new matter, or interrupt any Senator in possession of the Chair, and no debatable matter shall be brought forward or debate arise upon such explanation.

Senator STEELE HALL - I certainly have been misconstrued in the words used by Senator Rae. I want not to introduce any new subject matter but only to reject utterly the blatant and deliberate untruth that I am against the interests of small States. Senator Rae has no basis whatsoever for saying that and it is a desperate and unwarranted untruth.
