Summary

Edit

The majority voted against an amendment introduced by Katter's Australian Party Senator Fraser Anning (Qld), which means it failed. Senator Anning explains what he had hoped to do:

This amendment seeks to give tobacco manufacturers the right of veto over government efforts to impose plain packaging on their products. The likelihood is that, if this amendment were passed, so-called plain packaging of tobacco products would come to an end. This amendment seeks to ensure that the property rights expropriated by the original Tobacco Plain Packaging Act 2011 are restored.

In other words, the amendment would have basically put an end to the plain packaging laws.

Votes Not passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
