Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (12:40): My definition of 'Indigenous' will certainly be much better than the way you have ever dealt with Indigenous people. Your behaviour on Indigenous people when you first came to this parliament was absolutely outrageous.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Whish-Wilson ): Senator Hanson on a point of order.

Senator Hanson: Senator Cameron is not answering the question that I've asked.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: That's not a point of order, Senator.

Senator Hanson: Ridicule is not the answer that I'm looking for.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: Please take your seat. Senator Cameron, is that all you have to add?

Senator CAMERON: No. I indicated earlier that Labor is of the view that there is a three-point approach, the same as the Greens. Senator Hanson, we understand it's a person of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent, it's a person who identifies as being of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander origin and has been accepted as such by the community with which the person associates. If you had ever given respect to Aboriginals, you would have understood this.
