Mr PERRETT (9:22 AM) —Thank you, Mr Speaker. Last night, in a taxation debate in the chamber, I made an insensitive comment, which I withdrew at the time. Just to inform the House: I phoned Senator Barnaby Joyce this morning and apologised to him for the comment that I made, and he accepted my apology. I also apologise to the families of any people I offended. I thank the House.

The SPEAKER —I thank the member for Moreton, and I thank others in the House who know that my gratitude goes to them for the way in which that matter has been dealt with.
