The majority voted in favour of a motion to pass the bill in the House of Representatives. This means it will now be sent to the Senate for their consideration. In parliamentary jargon, they voted to read it for a third time.
What does this bill do?
This bill, together with the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia Bill 2018, was introduced to:
bring the Federal Circuit Court of Australia and the Family Court of Australia together into an overarching, unified administrative structure to be known as the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia.
Note that on 23 August 2018, the Senate referred the provisions of these two related bills to the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Legislation Committee for inquiry and report by 15 April 2019.
