I seek leave to make a brief explanation under standing order 191.

Leave granted.

I seek to correct the record with respect to remarks I made during a debate last week regarding aviation safety. The review of aviation safety regulation and the appointment of additional members with relevant aviation experience to the CASA board are coalition policy measures developed in response to the issues raised by many aviation industry stakeholders during and following the Senate Rural and Regional Affairs and Transport References Committee inquiry into the reporting of aviation accidents. My statement that these policy measures were derived from the recommendations of the Senate report as well as in response to broad industry concern was correct in respect of the review of aviation safety regulation. However, I wish to clarify that the recommendation of the report pertaining to the requirement for aviation specific experience in leadership pertained only to the ATSB.
