Senator CHRIS EVANS (Western AustraliaMinister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Jobs and Workplace Relations and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (15:01): I seek leave to incorporate a response to a question from Senator Ronaldson that I took on notice last Wednesday, 17 August.

Leave granted.

The answer read as follows—

Fair Work Australia investigation into Health Services Union

Fair Work Australia commenced investigations relating to possible breaches of the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Act 2009. That inquiry is still ongoing.

Consistent with the information provided to Senator Ronaldson at Senate Estimates on 30 May 2011, Fair Work Australia believes that the investigation may be finalised in the latter half of this year. This continues to be the case.

Senator Chris Evans
