Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion to suspend the usual laws (known as standing orders) to let a vote happen, which means the vote won't happen.

Because the vote related to abortion, which is considered a matter of conscience, the Liberal Party held a free vote, which is when its members can vote either way depending on their own conscience.
