Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Queensland Senator Larissa Waters (Greens), which means it failed. The motion was to suspend the usual procedural rules of Parliament to let a vote happen, known as standing orders.

Motion text

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent me from moving a motion relating to the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion relating to general notice of motion No.705.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
