Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion introduced by WA Senator Mathias Cormann (Liberal) to suspend the usual procedural rules - known as standing orders - to let a vote happen.

Motion text

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Cormann moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to provide for a motion relating to consideration of legislation, may be moved immediately and determined without amendment or debate.

Votes Passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
