Mr President, I rise on a point of order. The Prime Minister's ministerial code of conduct provides that in their private capacities ministers must 'uphold the laws of Australia' and demonstrate 'high standards of personal integrity'. To deny senators the opportunity to question a minister on a statement he has made in question time is to abrogate the role of the Senate.
