Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against the motion, which means it failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes:

(i) Senator Watt's comments on 24 November 2020 that the Labor Party supports 'free' energy,

(ii) the importance of cheap electricity to a successful economy and society, and

(iii) that Queensland's Kogan Creek power station is owned by the people of Queensland; and

(b) calls on the Queensland Government to:

(i) add a new turbine to their coal powered station at Kogan Creek, and

(ii) use the revenue generated by this new investment to restore maternity services in the nearby town of Chinchilla and other regional maternity wards shut down by previous Labor state governments.
