Prime Minister Scott Morrison talks down threat to Coalition after loss in Parliament vote
Labor and the crossbench had forced a series of measures into a government migration bill
The majority of the crossbench and Labor joined forces in the House of Representatives to pass amendments to give doctors a greater say on refugee medical evacuations.
But Prime Minister Scott Morrison has so far refused to buckle to calls for an early election and insists the Coalition retains the ability to govern.
The amendments that passed the House were agreed to by the Senate late last year, after Labor and the crossbench forced a series of measures into a government migration bill.
