Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion introduced by Labor Senator Lisa Singh (Tas), which means it succeeded. Motions like these do not make any legal changes alone, but can be politically influential as they represent the will of the Senate.

Motion text

That the Senate:

[...]

(d) compares the fanfare when the then Prime Minister, Mr Turnbull, commissioned the report at the April 2017 India Australia Business Dinner in Mumbai, to the Government's efforts to bury the report since it was handed over in April 2018; and

(e) urges the Federal Government to respond to the report and its recommendations, taking Australia's relationship with India to the level it deserves.

Votes Passed by a small majority
