Labor Senator Penny Wong says she “regrets” any pain that reports surrounding her interactions with late colleague Kimberly Kitching have caused but has rejected claims of bullying.

Senator Wong, along with fellow Labor Senators Kristina Keneally and Katy Gallagher, released a statement today following ongoing reports of a culture of bullying within the Labor Party.

Senator Kitching, who died from a suspected heart attack aged 52 last week, had reportedly told senior Labor figures she had been bullied, while ex-MP Emma Husar has said she suffered similar treatment.
