 2SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Mr Dreyfus  moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Isaacs from moving the following motion immediately—The House:

(1)notes:

(a)the Daily Telegraph reports today that the Deputy Prime Minister rang a benefactor for a place to stay and received a gift of rent-free accommodation worth an estimated $12,000;

(b)the Deputy Prime Minister continues to benefit from this gift;

(c)the Prime Minister’s own Statement of Ministerial Standards clearly states Ministers “must not seek or encourage any form of gift in their personal capacity”;

(d)the Prime Minister alone is responsible for enforcing his own Ministerial Standards;

(e)this is an open and shut case of a breach of the Ministerial Standards; and

(f)that if the Prime Minister will not take action on such a clear and egregious breach of his Ministerial Standards then they are worthless; and

(2)therefore, calls on the Prime Minister to immediately sack the Deputy Prime Minister for clearly breaching the Prime Minister’s Statement of Ministerial Standards.
