However, Simon Birmingham, federal finance minister of the Liberal National Union, said the government would not review any obligations.
“The government is not ordered. Senator Birmingham told ABC Radio on 22 November.
“I encourage parliamentarians not to bring one issue into another unrelated issue. Each part of the legislation needs to consider its benefits.”
However, Birmingham said the party would respect the position of the senator.
“This is the old tradition of the Liberal Nationalist Party … allowing our lawmakers to cross the floor without being thrown out of the party,” he said.
“But it’s always a right to be used sparingly, and I urge Congressmen not to confuse irrelevant issues.”
Treasury Minister Josh Frydenberg said the debate was underway.
“We will continue to present important legislation to Congress,” he told Seven Network on 22 November.
Frydenberg said mandating vaccines is a state issue.

But last week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison opposed forced vaccination. This happened shortly after Senators Antic and Renick publicly announced that they would refrain from voting.
“We are not in favor of the compulsory vaccine imposed by the government. Companies can make their own choices under the law, but we tell them what to do or Australians. It’s not about telling you what to do, “he told reporters.
The prime minister also gathered criticism from opposition leaders that he was less candid to condemn the “violent” protests in Melbourne last week.
“The Prime Minister should be able to take leadership and be not weak and be able to make these comments, and this action is unacceptable in Australia in 2020,” Albanese told ABC Radio.
“I blame the Prime Minister for his failure to speak out, the violent and extreme comments made, the gallows seizure, and the threats of Labor lawmakers and the Prime Minister and independents.”
Last week, protesters against the state’s imminent pandemic management bill gathered in front of the Melbourne parliament. A group of protesters paraded a set of gallows during the protest, while some lawmakers reported being threatened with murder.
