 17SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Mr C. Kelly moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for Hughes from moving the following motion immediately—That the House:

(1)notes:

(a)in a free democratic nation, any preventive medical intervention should only be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned;

(b)that no Australian should be placed in a position where they are forced to undertake medical intervention to open their business, keep their  job, to be able to pay their mortgage, or to put food on the table;

(c)today, many Australians are being coerced, against their free will, to submit to receiving a medical intervention (being the COVID vaccines) just to open their business, keep their job, to be able to pay their mortgage, or to put food on the table;

(d)that no Australian should be placed in a position where they are forced to undertake a medical intervention to visit a beach or a park;

(e)today, many Australians are being coerced, against their free will, to submit to receiving a medical intervention (being the COVID vaccines) if they wish to visit a beach or go to a park;

(f)that the Australian Constitution provides that trade commerce and intercourse between the states shall be “absolutely free”;

(g)the words “absolutely free” in the Constitution are not preceded by first providing some government issued health papers;

(h)many Australians are being coerced, against their free will, to submit to receiving a medical intervention (being the COVID vaccines) to cross state borders;

(i)the only document that Australians should need to cross a state border within Australia is that little book called the Constitution; and

(j)the latest data out of Israel evidences that vaccine passports are deception and little more than a marketing stunt as they provide little evidence that a person is less likely to have COVID, and the latest published science evidences that a person with a vaccine passport is no less likely to spread COVID compared to a person without a vaccine passport; and

(2)calls on the Government to immediately bring on the No Domestic COVID Vaccine Passports Bill 2021 for debate and for a vote.
