Topics: Apology to the Katherine Mayor  

Good morning. I just want to address some comments in the papers last night. 

In December, I met with a delegation from Katherine. 

During the course of the conversation, I used strong language. 

I have apologised to the mayor of Katherine and today I want to repeat that apology publicly and sincerely, and absolutely.

It was my fault and my responsibility and I accept that, and I think it’s important for me to both repeat that I have apologised to the mayor, but to repeat that apology publicly. 

Minister Hunt, why did it come out now? How come it was revealed now?

I should have apologised earlier. 

My fault and my responsibility and I accept that responsibility and repeat that apology to the mayor, sincerely and absolutely. 

Thank you very much.
