 11 SUSPENSION OF STANDING AND SESSIONAL ORDERS MOVED

Mr Windsor moved—That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for New England from moving that the House:

(1) deplores the Government's denial of a vote on the commitment of Australian Defence Forces to war in Iraq in the absence of UN endorsement;

(2) acknowledges 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;

(3) acknowledges the urgency of clarifying Australia's role with a vote of Parliament in light of suggestions today that the US and Britain will attack Iraq within the next two weeks with or without the support of the permanent members of the UN Security Council;

(4) supports the statement of UN General Assembly President Jan Kavan that all political and diplomatic means be exhausted to avoid a military conflict in Iraq; and

(5) immediately considers government business order of the day No. 46 and that the question be put forthwith.
