Summary

Edit

The majority voted in favour of a motion introduced by South Australian Senator Rex Patrick (Independent), which means it was successful.

Motion text

That, noting the Senate resolution of 23 November 2021 relating to National Cabinet and public interest immunity claims, there be laid on the table by the relevant ministers, by no later than 9 am Tuesday, 30 November 2021, the documents required by any Senate order, committee resolution or question on notice to which a claim of public interest immunity was made on the unacceptable ground that material related to the National Cabinet is subject to Cabinet confidentiality, including material required under:

(a) the Senate order relating to Doherty Institute modelling (No. 1208);

(b) Senate orders adopting the recommendations of the second interim report of the Select Committee on COVID-19; and

(c) questions on notice asked in the Senate or in the course of a committee inquiry.
