The majority voted against a motion introduced by Labor MP Joel Fitzgibbon, which means that it was rejected. It would have amended the original motion "That these bills be now read a second time" with the following:

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading as the government’s petrol tax is a broken promise that will increase the cost of living for Australian families."

Background to the bills

The Customs Tariff Amendment (Fuel Indexation) Bill 2014 and related bills were introduced to index the rate of excise and excise-equivalent customs duty applying to fuels, including gaseous fuels, in line with changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The amount gained through this fuel indexation will be put into a special account created by the Fuel Indexation (Road Funding) Special Account Bill 2014, which can only be used to fund road infrastructure.(Read more about the bills in the explanatory memorandum of the Customs Tariff Amendment (Fuel Indexation) Bill 2014.)
