With permission, Mr Speaker, I wish to make a personal statement in relation to today’s report. The report resulted from an allegation made by John Mann, and the Committee on Standards has dismissed his allegation. The Committee has recommended that I apologise to the House for my attitude to the Commissioner’s inquiries, and I, of course, unreservedly apologise. I fully accept the recommendations of the Committee, and thank it for bringing this matter to an end.
