Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion "that the question now be put". This motion ends debate by requiring that the vote occur immediately.

The question was whether a motion put by Senator Lee Rhiannon be agreed to. That motion related to the live export industry and was subsequently put.(See that motion here.)

Votes Passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
