Mr TUCKEY —Yes, Mr Deputy Speaker. The Minister for Finance (Mr Dawkins) in answer to my question this afternoon said that yesterday I called his mother a 'greedy old woman'. I have a copy of Hansard. On page 1654 I am recorded as saying:

The Minister, his greedy brothers and their greedy mother . . .

There is a difference. I respect both motherhood and age. I am deeply sorry and regret that I made that reference to his mother, and I apologise.
