Suspension of standing and sessional orders moved

(2) recognise that such a decision could well be taken in defiance of a veto by any permanent member of the UN Security Council;

(3) recognise that such a strike could constitute a breach of international law;

(4) recognise that chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix said overnight that Iraq is cooperating proactively;

(5) recognise that today is the last sitting day until 18 March 2003 and Australians wish their Parliament to debate our role in any pre-emptive strike as the UK Parliament and US Congress have done; and

(6) immediately consider government business order of the day No. 43 and that the question be put forthwith.
