With your permission, Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a personal statement about the events of last Thursday evening. While some Press reports of the incident may have been exaggerated, nevertheless if by any action I took I caused an affront to you, Mr. Speaker, the Leader of the Liberal Party and the House, I wish to apologise.

Hon. Members:

Hear, hear.
