     4 Building and Construction Industry (Improving Productivity) Bill 2013 [No. 2]

The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the bill be now read a second time—

Debate resumed.

Mr Bandt moved, as an amendment—That all the words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words: 

“the House declines to give the bill a second reading because the objective of  dealing with alleged wrongdoing in Australian society would be better achieved by establishing a broad-based national anti-corruption watchdog.”

Debate ensued.

Mrs Prentice addressing the House—

It being 1.30 pm, the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 43, Mrs Prentice was granted leave to continue her speech when the debate is resumed, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
