Summary

Edit

The same number of senators voted for and against an urgency motion introduced on behalf of Victorian Senator Kimberley Kitching (Labor), which means it failed.

Motion text

That, in the opinion of the Senate, the following is a matter of urgency:

Undermining of public health by the Morrison-Joyce Government by always doing too little too late, including ongoing failure to open any new federal quarantine facilities and deliver sovereign mRNA vaccine manufacturing capacity that would protect Australians and our neighbours from new variants of COVID-19, and instead pandering to anti-vax extremists for votes despite an ongoing global pandemic.

Votes Not passed

Nobody rebelled against their party.
