Summary

Edit

The majority of Senators disagreed with Senator Di Natale's motion:

That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent me moving a motion to provide for the consideration of a matter—namely, a motion relating to Australian forces in Syria.

He elaborated on the matter he proposed to discuss:

It is that parliamentary approval should be required for Australian forces to be deployed to Syria. I do believe this is a matter of urgency.

Votes Not passed by a modest majority
