Mr Latham asked the Prime Minister, upon notice, on 24 March 2003:

Has he recently declared his support for human rights in the Middle East; if so, will he now apologise to the parents whom he claimed to have thrown their children overboard during the last Federal election campaign.


Mr Howard (Prime Minister) —The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

These matters have been extensively canvassed in both public and parliamentary forums.

I refer the honourable member to the Government Members report of the Committee on a Certain Maritime Incident.
