Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (13:59): The absolute hypocrisy of the coalition, along with One Nation, in trying to avoid debate on workers getting protection for their penalty rates shows exactly what a rabble this government is. To talk about looking after workers and superannuation—they have never done it.

The PRESIDENT: Senator Bernardi, on a point of order?

Senator Bernardi: Yes, Mr President, I thought this motion was about debating the hours of the Senate for next week. It has nothing to do with penalty rates. I'm not sure that Senator Cameron screaming into the microphone about things that are not relevant to this debate is in any way helpful now that we are going to enter into question time.

The PRESIDENT: On the point of order, Senator Bernardi: a number of matters were raised in prior debate, and I do consider Senator Cameron to be relevant to the suspension motion that was before the Senate. But it being 2 pm, we will move to questions without notice.
