 46 SUSPENSION OF STANDING AND SESSIONAL ORDERS MOVED

Mr Fitzgibbon moved—That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Hunter moving the following motion forthwith:

This House calls upon the Acting Prime Minister to:


(1) table Mr Daniel Bolger's white wash security report relating to the visit to the Parliament by the President of the United States;

(2) request that the Speaker table the report of the Serjeant-at-Arms into the presence of a rogue camera in the gallery during the President's address;

(3) explain to the House the failure of Mr Bolger's report to address the events which led to the presence of the camera;

(4) reveal who gave authority for the third group of US journalists to access the 1stfloor northern gallery through the lift closest to the House of Representatives Chamber on the ground floor thus avoiding the security point on the 1stfloor walkway; and

(5) reveal who accompanied the third group of US journalists to the northern gallery after it left the Cabinet room, and what representatives of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet or staff of the Prime Minister were with them.
