Before I reply to questions, I made some remarks in relation to sinning priests this time last week on Leaders’ Questions. They caused offence to people. I never intended to offend. I wish to apologise to anyone whom I offended, including the Deputy, and to withdraw the remarks.

If that is a personal statement, then we move on: there can be no debate as per Standing Orders.
