Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of keeping the usual second reading motion unchanged. In parliamentary jargon, they voted "that the words proposed to be omitted stand part of the question." A second reading motion is "that the bill be read a second time," which is parliamentary jargon for agreeing with the main idea of the bill. This vote occurred after the MP for Melbourne Adam Bandt (Greens) proposed that the wording be changed.

Proposed change

That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"the House defers further consideration of the bill until the first sitting of 2021, and:

(1) notes the bill is being introduced and debated on the same day;

(2) further notes there is no urgent reason for the bill to be introduced and debated on the same day; and

(3) recognises the bill may have implications for all unions and Australian workers and should not be rushed through parliament without proper scrutiny".

Votes Passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
