The matter for urgency in this video, as proposed by and moved by Senator Ralph Babet was:
“It’s been more than two years since some Labor MP’s called for a Royal Commission into Australia’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. It’s been 16 months since Labor Senator Katy Gallagher backed a Royal Commission into Australia’s pandemic response. It’s been over a year since Prime Minister Anthony Albanese promised the Australian people a Royal Commission or a similar inquiry into Australia’s response to the COVID pandemic. He said an inquiry would be established ‘as soon as practicable’.”
