Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against clauses (b), (c) and (d) of a motion, which means it didn't reach majority and therefore failed.

Motion text

That—

(a) the Senate requires the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians to attend the Senate on 27 August 2020, before government business is called on, to provide an explanation, of no more than 15 minutes, of his administration of his portfolio, with particular reference to the Commonwealth's support to, and regulation of, aged care providers during the COVID-19 pandemic;

(b) at the conclusion of the Minister's statement, or if the Minister fails to make a statement, the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate may move a motion - without notice - relating to the explanation or the conduct of the minister;

(c) a motion moved under paragraph (b) may not be amended; and

(d) any motion under paragraph (b) shall have precedence over all other business until determined, and if the question has not been resolved at 11am the question shall then be put.
