  • <p class="speaker">Slade Brockman</p>
  • <p>The question is that the motion moved by Senator Thorpe be agreed to.</p>
  • The majority voted against a [motion]( introduced by Victorian Senator [Lidia Thorpe]( (Greens), which means it failed. The motion was to ignore the usual parliamentary procedural rules - known as [standing orders]( - in order to let another vote happen.
  • ### Motion text
  • > *That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent Senator Thorpe moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely, a motion to provide that a motion relating to approvals for new coalmines and gas projects, may be moved immediately, determined without amendment and take precedence over all other business for 30 minutes.*
