Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against the motion, which means it failed. It was introduced by Tasmanian Senator Nick McKim (Greens).

Motion text

That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

The need for the National Party to be stripped of the federal water portfolio, due to their refusal to accept the science of climate change, particularly in light of the Productivity Commission's draft report into the National Water Reform which found that climate change is threatening Australia's water security, clean drinking water and food supply.

Votes Not passed

Nobody rebelled against their party.
