Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Senator Cory Bernardi (SA), which means it failed.

There was one rebel, with One Nation Party Senator Brian Burston crossing the floor to vote against the rest of his party.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) expresses a concern that persons convicted in Australia of being a member of a terrorist organisation, in circumstances where they are recent migrants to Australia and liable to future deportation would:

(i) potentially present a significant national security and social cohesion problem in prisons, where they might spread their ideology, and

(ii) will attract significant state or territory taxpayer cost for the years served in incarceration – potentially in high security arrangements – for the offence; and

(b) calls upon the Attorney-General to work with state and territory Attorneys-General to establish criteria for:

(i) circumstances where such individuals will be deported immediately, rather than serving a sentence of imprisonment, and

(ii) giving weight to the prospect the destination country will imprison the deportee.

Votes Not passed by a large majority
