 16 SUSPENSION OF STANDING AND SESSIONAL ORDERS MOVED

Ms Gillard moved—That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Lalor from moving the following motion:

That the House otherwise orders an amendment to the routine of business of the day to provide for a motion of censure against the Minister for Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs in the following terms:

That this House censures the Minister for Immigration, Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs for continuing to mislead the House on this Cash for Visas scandal, refusing to abide by his Prime Minister's Ministerial Code of Conduct and correct the record once he has been caught out, and for the Minister's continued failure to respond to allegations:

That the Minister is allowing a pattern of preferential treatment to visa applicants that have links to the Minister and have donated to the Liberal Party giving new meaning to the Liberal Party election slogan "We will decide who comes to this country and the circumstances in which they will come", and that this Minister, following his scandalous role in the Children Overboard misinformation saga, has now brought into disrepute the integrity of Australia's migration program; and in doing so has irreparably impugned his own credibility, integrity, and honesty.
