I refer to the matter about which the President made a statement on Thursday 30 March 2023. I was not in the chamber when the statement was made by the President, and Senator Hughes withdrew her remarks. In order to maintain the dignity of the chamber, I withdraw.

Thank you, Senator Thorpe. I would like to thank Senators Hughes and Thorpe for the gracious way in which they have withdrawn those comments. I would remind all senators to recheck the comments that I made on that day and to act in a respectful way.
