Summary

Edit

The majority voted against clause (c) of a motion introduced by Tasmanian Senator Anne Urquhart (Labor), which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

...

(c) notes that:

(i) Queensland Labor achieved a state-wide swing of 4.2% and has won at least three seats previously held by the Liberal National Party,

(ii) the Liberal National Party preferenced Pauline Hanson's One Nation and the Greens Party ahead of Labor, in every seat in the Queensland state election,

(iii) the Liberal National Party's preferences elected the only Queensland One Nation MP and doubled the seats held by Greens MPs in the Queensland Parliament, and

(iv) the policies of One Nation and the Greens Party would do great economic damage to Queensland at a time when every job is vital, as we look to recover from COVID-19.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority
