Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The honourable member for the Northern Territory is continually interjecting. I ask him to withdraw the expression he has just used. If he does not stop interjecting I will have to warn him. I ask him to withdraw what he just said.


Mr Calder - I have called this Minister an unmitigated liar before and I will stand by it.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - I name the honourable member.


Mr Calder - I will not withdraw it because it is exactly what he is and that is what the honourable member for Mackellar was saying. He is an unmitigated liar and he has to be exposed.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! I ask the Sergeant-at-Arms to remove the honourable member from the chamber.


Mr Staley - What about the procedures?


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Order! The chamber will come to order. I withdraw that order because it is a very severe step but I do believe that honourable members should behave like members of this House.


Mr McLeay - Both sides.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - If the honourable member for Boothby wishes to join the honourable member for the Northern Territory he is welcome.


Mr McLeay - That suits me.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - I suggest to the honourable member that he add to the decorum of the House by remaining silent for a few moments. Even though the honourable member for the Northern Territory has made certain statements which are difficult for me to let stand, I ask him again whether he will withdraw his remark and apologise to the Chair.


Mr Calder - No. I have made those statements before and I will not withdraw them.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Very well. I am left with no alternative but to name the honourable member for the Northern Territory.


Mr DALY - With great regret on the occasion of Her Majesty's visit I move:

That the honourable member for the Northern Territory be suspended from the service of the House.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER - Before I put the question I again ask the honourable member whether he is prepared to withdraw the remark and apologise to the Chair. As the honourable member is not prepared to do so I put the question: That the honourable member for the Northern Territory be suspended from the service of the House.
