Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (17:28): Mr President, I seek leave to make a short statement.

The PRESIDENT: Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator CAMERON: It is hypocritical of the Greens to sit here and basically support the coalition to knock this off when we could be debating the issues that are important for ordinary working class people in Australia. These are people that you have no idea about; people that the Greens do not seem to have any compassion for these days. These are people who are the victims of phoenixing. These are the people who are the victims of companies doing the wrong thing, like 7-Eleven. We have seen 7-Eleven employees intimidated, 7-Eleven employees subjected to criminal activity by their employers, and you sit here and back this in. To not deal with this matter is pure hypocrisy, and another example of the Greens losing the plot.

The PRESIDENT: The question is that the motion moved by Senator Cameron be agreed to.
