Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (15:19): Mr Speaker, I wish to make a very short statement on indulgence. I understand that the member for Hunter made an inappropriate noise towards the Deputy Leader of the Opposition when she was speaking during the suspension debate. I have been advised of that during the course of moving around. This was clearly the wrong thing for the member for Hunter to do. I will be requiring him to apologise personally to the Deputy Leader of the Opposition.

As a woman in this parliament of course I say to all members of the Labor team and all members of the parliament generally that conduct towards women in this parliament which would not occur towards men in this parliament is inappropriate and wrong and should not be indulged in by any member.
