Mr TIM FISCHER —Mr Speaker, I have now had a chance to check the initial transcript in respect of the point of order I took under standing order 75 when you said, `The Prime Minister might withdraw that remark'. In other words, you in fact gave a ruling that the Prime Minister should withdraw the remark in respect of senators being pansies and his remark yesterday about senators being swill . I ask therefore that you now take the opportunity—as the Prime Minister says he observes the courtesies—to call him back in here to withdraw and apologise.

Mr MCLEAY —That caravan has passed on.

Mr Tim Fischer —Mr Speaker—

Mr SPEAKER —Order! Resume your seat.
