Mr CREAN (9:31 AM) —I move:

That so much of standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Treasurer being required to attend the chamber forthwith to explain, before he goes overseas tomorrow:

(a) his leadership challenge in today's Australian Financial Review ;

(b) why he has chosen to set the clock ticking on the Prime Minister's leadership; and

(c) his own timetable for and claim on leadership of the Coalition.

This is the Placido Domingo mark 2 speech! This is the Treasurer moving on the Prime Minister!

Motion (by Mr Hockey) put:

That the member be not further heard.

Question put.
