Peters and one of his MPs booted out

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 3/05/2016

NZ First leader Winston Peters and one of his MPs have been ordered out of parliament's debating chamber.

The row started when Denis O'Rourke was asking questions about the rail network, and Speaker David Carter told him one of his questions was too long.

Mr O'Rourke argued about that and was told to leave.

Mr Peters joined in and questioned Mr Carter about his ruling.

That was considered out of bounds, and he was ordered out as well.

They both had to stay out for the rest of question time.
