New South Wales Labor MP Chris Hayes was rushed to hospital after collapsing in Parliament as he gave moving speech on child sexual abuse

M Hayes became visibly upset when speaking about his cousin’s experience of child sexual abuse at the hands of the Catholic Church

A number of other politicians, including party colleagues Michael Freelander and Tanya Plibersek, rushed to his aid as help was requested

« May I thank Dr Freelander and [Member of Parliament] Dr [David] Gillespie who rushed to the Federation House to assist and all members on both sides who acted with care and compassion « , he declared

« I spoke with [his wife] Bernadette, who was with him in the hospital, where he will stay overnight for additional tests »

M Albanese stated that M Hayes, who is the chief opposition whip, was « in a good mood »

« I told the Chief Opposition Whip if he wanted permission he should just ask, there are easier ways to get it than what happened this morning but I can’t wait to bring it back to this room « 

« We can disagree on a lot of things here, but we all agree that Chris Hayes is a really good guy, » said Scott Morrison

« And many of us also know Bernadette, she has been welcome here around this place for many years… our prayers are with you »
