help me somebody

23 February, 2010

Mr RUDD— […] On the question of the APEC meetings and the discussions with the President of Indonesia—

The SPEAKER— Order! The Prime Minister shall resume his seat.

Mr Pyne— You’re wriggling on the hook!

The SPEAKER— I am not sure whether the Manager of Opposition Business is trying to bait me, but he will sit there quietly. TheDeputy Leader of the Opposition on a point of order.

Ms Julie Bishop— Mr Speaker, I asked whether the Prime Minister had sought a formal bilateral meeting at APEC. If not, why not?

The SPEAKER— Order! The Prime Minister is responding to the question.

Mr RUDD— At the APEC meeting, I was aware of the fact that I would be seeing the President of Indonesia informally on a number of occasions. In total, there were about five occasions. We discussed everything from border protection to asylum seekers, the individual vessel in question, the President’s visit to Australia, his possible address to the parliament as well as world peace.

Opposition members interjecting—

The SPEAKER— The House will come to order! I am not sure whether world peace goes to pacifying the House, but if President Yudhoyono wants to help me I will take his help.
