IRAQ: WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION—MINISTERIAL STATEMENT AND PAPERS—MOTION TO TAKE NOTE OF PAPERS

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the motion of Mr Downer (Minister for Foreign Affairs)—That the House take note of the papers (see item 6, page 399)—

Debate resumed.

Mr Andren moved, as an amendment—That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words: "while the House commends the Government for its strong condemnation of terrorists and their activities and its encouragement of Iraq's compliance with United Nations resolutions the House believes that Australian Defence Forces should not be involved in any action in Iraq that is not carried out under a United Nations' Resolution".

Debate continued.


Debate adjourned (Mr Wakelin), and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for the next sitting.
