FOR – Motions - Prime Minister - Don't let another vote take place

The majority voted in favour of disagreeing with a motion introduced by Dickson MP Peter Dutton (Liberal), which means it failed.

Motion text

That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent the Leader of the Opposition from moving the following motion immediately—That this House:

(1) notes that:

(a) before the election, the Prime Minister promised on at least 97 occasions that Australians would receive a $275 cut in their power bills; and

(b) since the election, the Prime Minister has abandoned this promise and refused on 27 occasions to stand by this promise when asked about it in this House; and

(2) therefore condemns the Prime Minister for cynically and deliberately misleading the Australian people.
