Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion to suspend the usual procedural rules - known as standing orders - to let a vote happen.

Motion text

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Wong) moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter, namely a motion to give precedence to a motion of censure of the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians.

Votes Not passed by a small majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
