Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against a motion introduced by ACT Senator Katy Gallagher (Labor), which means it failed.

Motion text

That—

(3) Any motion under paragraph (2) may be debated for no longer than 60 minutes, shall have precedence over all business until determined, and senators may speak to the motion for not more than 10 minutes each.
