Mr HOCKEY (North Sydney) (15:13): I move:

That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for North Sydney from moving the following motion forthwith:

That this House:

(1) condemns this Government for failing to adequately detail how it will pay for its $120 billion of new spending on disability services, additional funding for aged care, new funding for low-paid workers, increased costs of its border protection failures, funding of new defence projects, establishment of a new dental care scheme, and provision of additional education funding for everyone everywhere;

(2) calls on the Treasurer to immediately explain which new or increased taxes will be introduced to fund the Government's $120 billion Budget black hole; and

(3) further condemns the Government for refusing to release Treasury's taxpayer funded costings of Greens taxation policies, and rejects the Government's claims that the documents would "allow a direct inference to be drawn about subsequent Cabinet deliberations", and that they contained "material prepared to inform deliberations of Government".

This mob cannot continue to be hypocrites in the House. They need to come clean about their $120 billion hole. What—

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Order! The member for North Sydney will resume his seat. My apologies; I was trying to do something else. The Leader of the House has the call.

Mr Albanese: The government has not been given the courtesy of being furnished with a copy of the rant from the shadow Treasurer.

Mr Pyne: You can't have it until he's read it.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The member for North Sydney has the call.

Mr HOCKEY: Time and time again Labor comes out with big-spending promises. They do everything they can to stop us from trying to clean up their mess. We have to come in and clean up their mess because—the Lord knows!—they know how to make a mess.

Mr Albanese: In the interests of all of our hearing, I move:

That the member be no longer heard.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER: The question is that the member be no longer heard.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Ms AE Burke ): Is the motion seconded?
