Mr Bandt moved, as an amendment to the amendment proposed by Dr Chalmers—That all words after “whilst” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House appreciates the significance of this measure, the House defers further consideration of the bill until the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and the World Trade Organization Agreement on Government Procurement contain:

(1)    better protections for labour rights, the environment, and local business; and

(2)    no investor-state dispute settlement provisions”.

Debate ensued.


Ms Ley (Assistant Minister for Regional Development and Territories) presented an addendum to the explanatory memorandum to the bill.

Question—That the amendment moved by Mr Bandt to the proposed amendment moved by Dr Chalmers be agreed to—put.

The House divided and only Mr Bandt, Mr Katter and Mr Wilkie voting “Aye”, the Speaker (Mr A. D. H. Smith) declared the question resolved in the negative.
