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.
