Mr HOWARD (2.55 p.m.) —I move:

  That so much of the Standing and Sessional Orders be suspended as would prevent the member for Bennelong moving forthwith: That this House censures the Treasurer for refusing to resign his office despite clear evidence that he misled the Parliament and the people of Australia over the Victorian loans affair.


Mr Keating —You've got no shame, John—no shame.


Mr HOWARD —You have no credibility on this issue—none at all.


Mr SPEAKER —Order! The House will come to order. Is the motion seconded?


Mr Downer —I second the motion.


Mr HOWARD —On what basis has the Treasurer got the call?


Mr SPEAKER —The honourable member has not got the call either. I have called for a seconder. If anyone has the call, it is the seconder.

  Question resolved in the affirmative with an absolute majority.
