Prime Minister


Mr SHORTEN (MaribyrnongLeader of the Opposition) (14:47): My question is to the Prime Minister. All of this week the Prime Minister has claimed that he has not cut health, education or pensions, yet Liberal governments around the country, his own budget papers and his own colleagues have confirmed that the Prime Minister has cut health, education and pensions. Why is the Prime Minister lying and why is he lying about lying?

The SPEAKER: The Leader of the Opposition should know by now that that is a totally unacceptable question. The language is unacceptable. It is against the standing orders. If he wishes to withdraw those remarks and rephrase the question—

Honourable members interjecting

The SPEAKER: And withdraw.
