Senate votes down government motion on FASEA bill

Labor and the cross-bench have voted to insist on the amendment added to the FASEA extension bill by Senator Rex Patrick, prolonging a further political deadlock around the bill.

A vote on a government motion that the Senate not insist on the amendment was narrowly defeated in the Senate this afternoon when the bill returned to the upper house for debate.


As the House of Representatives voted to reject the amendment yesterday, this means the bill is looking increasingly unlikely to  pass Parliament.

More to come.
