Debate resumed from 18 August, on motion by Dr Nelson:

That this bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Emerson moved by way of amendment:

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the Bill a second reading and condemns the Government for:

(1) bringing divisive and unnecessary legislation before this House aimed at inflaming conflict in Australian workplaces; and

(2) failing to provide adequate collective bargaining rights for working Australians, and instead proposing legislation that would make the settlement of industrial disputes more difficult”.
