Senator ROBERTS (Queensland) (19:14): Minister, when the transition is completed, wouldn't there be increased competition in the industry? If that is correct then my faith in people shows that there is an incentive for people to become code compliant. That will mean that all the hurdles to getting code compliant will be overcome through an innate cooperation between people, and small companies in particular will find it very easy to get code compliance. What this really brings is a culture change, once the transition is completed, that will bring increased safety and increased efficiencies for the taxpayer, small businesses and union members. So I put it to you that with the ending of the cartel, there will be increased competition, we will get compliance and we will get the code implemented very quickly.
