The Day In Parliament for 23 September 2015 - morning edition

From In Parliament, 5:45 am on 23 September 2015

Assistant Speaker Trevor Mallard takes exception to a comment by National's Nick Smith - and responds by first ordering him to withdraw and apologise, then ordering him to leave the chamber, only to make him come back to the chamber to apologise again - finally sending him from the chamber one final time; Government makes progress on the committee stages of four of its bills, including one which changes the way ACC levies are set; Question Time sees the Opposition pose six identical questions to the Prime Minister - on whether he stands by all his statements over the past seven years.
