  • Passing this motion ends the discussion of the bill in detail. Immediately after this motion, the members agreed to read the bill for a third time.([http://www.openaustralia.org/debates/?id=2012-03-22.44.1 Third reading] passed without division. ) This means that the bill passed through the House of Representatives and, as it had already passed through the Senate, it will now become law.
