  • The majority voted against an [http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2006-02-16.18.2 amendment] introduced by Liberal MP [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/mp.php?mpn=Jackie_Kelly&mpc=Lindsay&house=representatives Jackie Kelly], which means that it was rejected. The amendment would have amended the original motion "That this bill be now read a second time" with the following:

  • ''(1) the Minister for Health and Ageing continuing to have the decision making role in relation to the approval of ''restricted goods'' as defined in the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989;''
  • ''(2) the Minister being required to obtain written advice from the Therapeutic Goods Administration prior to giving written approval or refusal to approve; and''
  • ''(3) the Minister’s decision being subject to disallowance by each House of Parliament”.''
  • This division was a [http://publicwhip-test.openaustraliafoundation.org.au/faq.php#rebelandfree conscience vote], meaning that members were not required to vote along party lines.
  • ''Background to the bill''
