Prosser upset Parliament apology not heard

Related

The man at the centre of the latest political storm is upset he never got a chance to apologise for his anti-Muslim tirade to his fellow MPs.

New Zealand First's Richard Prosser issued a written apology yesterday for comments made in a magazine column.

He then attempted to say sorry in Parliament, but was shut down by Mana leader Hone Harawira.

The list MP insists he is genuinely sorry and wanted to tell his colleagues that.

"I was going to make a statement essentially re-iterating what I'd said in print. Would have been nice to be able to do that. It's nice to be able to give an apology and have that be a genuine thing."

Mr Prosser is adamant he won't be resigning from Parliament.
