SUSPENSION OF STANDING AND SESSIONAL ORDERS MOVED

Mr Beazley (Leader of the Opposition) moved—That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Minister for Aged Care coming into the House to explain the character of the letter from her Department to the Australian Federal Police, dated 29 February 2000 given that:

(1) it does not constitute a direct referral requesting the Federal Police to investigate specified cases, including the reference in the Aged Care Standards Agency's second audit report to the fact that a dying patient had been bathed in kerosene; and

(2) the Minister yesterday told the House that "matters to investigate" had been referred by her Department to the Federal Police.

Closure of Member

Mr Reith (Leader of the House) moved—That the Member be not further heard.

Question—put.
