 6 SUSPENSION OF STANDING AND SESSIONAL ORDERS MOVED

Mr Andren moved—That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Calare moving that the House:

(1) acknowledge that, in rejecting that the question be put, the House voted to continue the debate on the Prime Minister's statement on Iraq and proposed amendments on the last sitting day before the recent break, February 13;

(2) recognise that this debate has subsequently not been scheduled for further consideration and resolution of the question;

(3) acknowledge that the US Congress and UK House of Commons have debated and voted on the question of their country's involvement in military action against Iraq;

(4) acknowledge that it is necessary that this House also vote on the nature of Australian Defence Force involvement in Iraq;

(5) acknowledge that it is the wish of the Australian people that the House of Representatives vote on this important question; and

(6) immediately consider government business order of the day No. 49 and that the question be put forthwith.
