Suspension of standing orders moved

Mr Burke moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Watson from moving the following motion forthwith—That the House:

(1)    notes:

(a)    today, this House unanimously asked the High Court to determine whether the Deputy Prime Minister is constitutionally qualified to be a Member of Parliament;

(b)   the New Zealand Government has since confirmed that the Deputy Prime Minister is a New Zealand citizen despite the Prime Minister’s assurance on this matter;

(c)    the Government has relied on the vote of the Deputy Prime Minister to block a Royal Commission into the banks and to block amendments to legislation which would have stopped nearly 700,000 Australians from having their penalty rates cut; and

(d)   the former Minister for Resources and Northern Australia resigned from Cabinet because there were doubts over his constitutional qualifications; and

(2)    therefore, calls on the Prime Minister to:

(a)    release any legal advice it has received about the constitutional qualifications of the Deputy Prime Minister;

(b)   rule out accepting the vote of the Deputy Prime Minister while his constitutional qualifications are in doubt; and

(c)    direct the Deputy Prime Minister to immediately resign from Cabinet.

Debate ensued.

The time allowed by standing order 1 for debate on the motion having expired—

Question—put.
