Summary

Edit

The majority voted against an amendment introduced by WA Senator Rachel Siewert (Greens). It would have added the words below to the end of the usual motion "that the bill be read for a second time", which is parliamentary jargon for: "that the majority agree with the main idea of the bill".

Words added

At the end of the motion, add:

", but the Senate calls upon the Government to re-regulate electricity prices and establish a public retailer to lower electricity prices."

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
