If I have caused offence to Senator Allison—I had not heard her speak in relation to the matter that Senator Nettle spoke about—I apologise to her. Having listened to the speech of Senator Nettle, I stand by my remarks. It came across to me as being very much motivated by the politics of envy. As far as I am concerned I stand by those remarks. In terms of the remarks by Senator McLucas, I did not have an indication whether the Labor Party would be supporting Senator Nettle’s amendments. I am glad that you have placed on record your intention to vote against them and I am grateful for that support.
