Senator Thorpe, if you did make a personal reflection, I'd ask you to withdraw it. I didn't hear the phrase used. I can check the Hansard, but, if you do think you made a personal reflection upon a member of another place, it would help the chamber if you would withdraw it. As I remind senators, it is very easy to use language criticising an action, an event or a policy. The standing orders require very careful language around people. So, Senator Thorpe, I didn't hear what you said. If you'd like to withdraw, you're free to. If not, I'll check the Hansard.
