PERSONAL EXPLANATIONS

Mr CADMAN (Mitchell) (5.17 p.m.) —Mr Deputy Speaker, I wish to make a personal explanation

The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Jenkins)—Does the honourable member claim to have been misrepresented?

Mr CADMAN —Yes.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER —Please proceed.

Mr CADMAN —On 4 February the Australian published a report which I refute. The report said I had described older women who became pregnant as `dumb'. I do not think like that, I do not speak like that and I do not believe that I said words that any way resemble those comments. Sensitivity and compassion are needed in these issues. Had I ever used words like that I would have instantly apologised. I reject the assertions of the report.
