failed to be able to mount an attack on what is indeed a very important motion in this place today. Will the minister now rectify the weaknesses in police strength? Will he start to support our police? Will the minister now begin to set the record straight regarding the truth about police numbers? Will the minister indeed apologise for misleading the house about the effective strength of ACT police?

Mr Hargreaves: Mr Speaker, I rise on a point of order. Mr Pratt has just suggested that I misled the house.

MR SPEAKER: You cannot accuse people of misleading the house, unless by a substantive motion. Mr Pratt, if you have done that, withdraw it.
