  • <p>We're now moving to a deferred vote. Last Thursday, a division was deferred on a motion moved by Senator Carr for the closure of debate on general business notice of motion No. 1203. I understand it suits the convenience of the Senate to hold that division now. If the motion is agreed to, I will then put the question on the substantive motion as moved by Senator Gallagher. If the motion is negated, it means general business notice of motion No. 1203 will be placed on the general business list and be available for consideration at a later date. We will then move to the next item of business. The question is that the motion moved by Senator Carr, that the question be now put, be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion]( to vote on the Commonwealth Integrity Commission motion straight away. In parliamentary jargon, they voted against *putting the question*.
