In his speech, Shorten sought to focus attention on the proposed co-payment for Medicare, declaring that Labor’s support for universal health insurance was one of its central tenets.

The conference voted to introduce rank-and-file membership voting for the NSW parliamentary leader. However, it voted against proposals by Senator John Faulkner to introduce rank-and-file voting for Senate and NSW Legislative Council preselections.
