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.
