  • <p class="italic">That the House:</p>
  • <p class="italic">notes that the member for Bowman is unfit to be a member of parliament and the government needs to act to show that it has listened to women; and</p>
  • <p class="italic">calls on the Prime Minister to discharge the member for Bowman from the Standing Committee on Employment, Education and Training immediately.</p>
  • <p>Obviously, the member for Bowman needs to resign from the committee position that he holds. He should stop drawing the extra salary, and the government should take action&#8212;</p>
