The majority wanted to disallow the Corporations Amendment (Streamlining Future of Financial Advice) Regulations 2014, which means that it is no longer in effect.

A rebellious senator

Palmer United Party (PUP) Senator Jacqui Lambie crossed the floor and voted 'aye' in this division (see ABC News). This rebellion happened on the same day that she was removed as deputy Senate leader and deputy whip of PUP for not attending three party meetings this week (see ABC News).

Background to the motion

Labor Senator Sam Dastyari introduced the motion and gave a good explanation for his reasons for doing so. ABC News also gave a useful summary of the background of this motion, particularly under the subheading 'Coalition of common sense'.

Votes Passed by a small majority

There was 1 rebellion in this division.

  • Jacqui Lambie voted Yes against the majority of the Palmer United Party.
