Senator MARSHALL (Victoria) (18:44): Seven days is the process to apply to get to the commission, but before that, there has to be a process of negotiation and consultation that satisfies the legal requirements of doing that in the first place. Again, my advice is that that is at least 28 days then the seven days will kick in and then there is a process of how busy the commission is going to be at that point in time, with potentially tens of thousands of agreements lining up. Can I ask whether the Fair Work Commission has been consulted about its capacity to actually vary potentially tens of thousands of agreements over the next nine months.
