The PRESIDENT - Order! I interrupt the proceedings of the Senate to make the following statement: The incident earlier this evening has been discussed with me in the President's rooms in the presence of the Leader of the Government (Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson) and the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Murphy) as well as the parties concerned, and it has been resolved. Senator Douglas McClelland now understands that he had placed a different interpretation on words used by Senator

Gair to that which Senator Gair states he had intended. Senator Douglas McClelland said that, as a result of the interpretation he had placed on the words, he had become inflamed and he had made a statement to Senator Gair in the heat of the moment which he now regrets, and he apologises to the Senate. The incident is now closed.
