I seek leave to make a short personal statement to clarify a matter from question time.

Leave granted.

Mr President, as you asked us to reflect, I reflected on my behaviour in question time. I acknowledge that interjections are always disorderly. I also acknowledge that I was making interjections while Senator Lambie was asking a question during question time. While I do not accept the characterisation of my interjections in the manner that was raised in points of order at that time by other senators, I do regret the interjections and I apologise to Senator Lambie and to the Senate unreservedly. Mr President, I commit to holding myself to the highest standards in the future.
