Mr JENKINS (Scullin) (10:03): Mr Deputy Speaker, under sessional order 142A I was wondering whether the member for Wannon would entertain a question on his contribution to this second reading debate.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER ( Mr S Georganas ): The member for Wannon? The member for Scullin wishes to intervene and ask a question, which he has every right to do. But it is entirely up to you if you wish to answer.

Mr Tehan: No, he can ask this question.

Mr JENKINS: I thank the member for Wannon. Without getting into the debate—because you cannot debate through a question—I ask the member for Wannon whether he believes that, in the case of the abattoirs and health services that he has talked about locally, it is appropriate that those that are employed under 457 visas get the same pay and conditions as Australians and, if so, how he believes that that should be regulated.
