Mr FITZGIBBON (Hunter) (15:17):  I wish to make a personal explanation.

The SPEAKER:  Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr FITZGIBBON:  I do, Madam Speaker—about three minutes ago by the Minister for Agriculture.

The SPEAKER:  Please proceed.

Mr FITZGIBBON:  The Minister for Agriculture claimed rather strangely that in my earlier intervention I somehow suggested that the NFF wrote the Labor Party's policy. No; what I said was that the NFF rated the Labor Party's very good and comprehensive agriculture policy. To help him, I seek leave to table the NFF scorecard, which shows Labor ahead of the coalition on agriculture policy.

The SPEAKER:  Leave is not granted.
