The majority voted against a motion introduced by Labor MP for Jagajaga Jenny Macklin, which means the motion failed. The motion didn't change the bill in any way but instead asked for the Government to establish a Royal Commission into Violence and Abuse against People with Disability.
That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:
"whilst not declining to give the bill a second reading, the House:
(1) notes that people with disability experience much higher rates of violence than the rest of the community, and in many cases, this violence occurs in places where they are meant to be receiving support;
(2) notes that children with disability are at least three times more likely to experience abuse than other children;
(3) condemns the Government's decision to reject a Royal Commission into Violence and Abuse against People with disability;
(4) notes that, contrary to the Government's claims, NDIS Quality and Safeguards will not negate the need for a Royal Commission into abuse of people with disability; and
(5) calls on the Turnbull Government to establish a Royal Commission so that people with disability, their families and carers can tell their stories to the highest level of judicial inquiry and seek justice".
