Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Labor Senator Anne Urquhart, which means it failed.

Motion text

That—

(1) The Minister representing the Minister for Aged Care is required to attend the Senate at 9.30 am on Wednesday, 20 June 2018 to explain:

(a) when the Minister first knew that the answer provided in question time on 9 May 2018, relating to home care aged packages, was incorrect; and

(b) why the Minister failed to attend the chamber at the first available opportunity to correct the record.

(2) Any senator may move a motion to take note of the Minister's statement, and any such motion may be debated for no longer than 1 hour, and have precedence over all government business until determined.
