Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion that related to control of Abbot Point coal terminal in light of potential transparency issues reported by the media. This means that the motion failed.

Motion text

That the Senate—

(a) notes recent media reporting which shows that Adani's ownership and taxation arrangements in relation to the Abbot Point coal terminal and proposed Carmichael coal mine lack transparency; and

(b) calls on the Federal Government to urgently establish which individuals or corporate entities control the Abbot Point coal terminal and the Carmichael mine and whether all relevant disclosures have been made to Australian regulators.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
