    Mr Quick, a Labor MP from Tasmania, said he had received widespread support from the community for his stand.

    "I've had dozens and dozens of emails and phone calls from parents saying we don't want to send our kids, keep up the good work," he told reporters.

    Asked if he was prepared to be expelled over the issue, Mr Quick said: "If we support a pre-emptive strike against Iraq, yes I am."

    Mr Quick was also against a United Nations-endorsed attack on Iraq."
