Debate resumed from 22 June, on motion by Mr Andrews:

That this bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Emerson moved by way of amendment:

That all words after “That” be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

“the House declines to give the Bill a second reading and:

(1) condemns the Government for undermining the independence of the industrial relations commission, and

(2) calls on the government instead to investigate measures to assist those small businesses that do not have the capacity to pay redundancy payments, to obtain individual exemptions from the AIRC”.
