Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by SA Senator Sarah Hanson-Young (Greens) on behalf of Queensland Senator Larissa Waters (Greens), which means it failed. It would have "disallowed" the legislative instrument mentioned below. To disallow something is to stop it from having legal effect. Because this vote was unsuccessful, the instrument will continue to be law.

Motion text

That the Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument 2021, made under the Industry Research and Development Act 1986, be disallowed

What does this Instrument do?

According to the explanatory statement:

The purpose of the Industry Research and Development (Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program) Instrument 2021 (the Legislative Instrument) is to prescribe the Beetaloo Cooperative Drilling Program (the Program). The purpose of the Program is to encourage and facilitate accelerated gas exploration in the Beetaloo sub-basin through the provision of grants. The Program will support the development of the Northern Territory gas industry while building on the Australian Government’s commitment to unlocking gas supply and contributing to gas security across Australia.
