NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/08/2016

Labour MP Sue Moroney has been ordered out of parliament after interjecting "gutless" while Michael Woodhouse was speaking.

The minister was launching the third reading of the Easter Sunday trading bill when Ms Moroney interjected.

Deputy Speaker Chester Borrows ordered here to withdraw the remark and apologise.

"I withdraw and apologise for using the word gutless," she said.

That broke the rules as well, because she had used the offending word twice, and she was ordered out of the debating chamber..
