Summary

Edit

The majority voted against a motion to have the asylum seekers that sought asylum in Australia - and that are currently in Papua New Guinea and Nauru - brought to Australia. This means the motion failed.

Motion text

That the Senate agrees that Australia's detention centres on Manus Island and Nauru are not safe and that every person who has sought asylum in Australia, and is currently in Papua New Guinea or Nauru, must be evacuated to Australia immediately.

Votes Not passed by a large majority

Nobody rebelled against their party.
