SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Mr Swan moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Lilley from moving forthwith the following motion:

1. the unprecedented decision of the Speaker to expunge the Hansard record without reference to precedents of the House;

2. his continuing application of standing orders in favour of the Government exemplified today in Question Time by refusing to rule the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations out of order, rather, extending to him latitude denied to the Opposition to ask a relevant and in order question to the Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the National Party; and

3. the abuse of House procedures in gagging a dissent motion to protect the Speaker from scrutiny over his rulings in the House.

Closure of Member

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

Question—put.
