Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion introduced by Australian Conservatives Senator Cory Bernardi, which means it was unsuccessful.

Motion text

That, given the Commonwealth's debt and Australia's budget deficit, the Senate is of the view that all senators receive an appropriate remuneration package and, therefore, the Remuneration Tribunal should not consider increasing the remuneration paid to senators until the Government has delivered a budget surplus.

Votes Not passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
