Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by South Australian Senator Rex Patrick (Independent) to suspend the usual procedural rules - known as standing orders - in order to let a vote happen. This means it failed.

Motion text

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Patrick moving a motion relating to the conduct of the business of this Senate, namely a motion to give precedence to general business notice of motion No. 1043 immediately, determined without amendment or debate.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
