Senator Boswell: To move on the next day of sitting-That the Senate-

(a) notes with concern the increasing attacks on the independent, self-employed business operator through:

(i) continued changes in the Income Tax Assessment Act, forcing independent contractors and workers into the inappropriate PAYE system,

(ii) the recommendation of the Hancock Report that the Australian Conciliation and Arbitration Commission be given jurisdiction over independent contractors,

(iii) repeated union intimidation in the transport and associated industries to force the self-employed into union-controlled superannuation schemes, and

(iv) the Federal Labor Government's capital gains tax; and

(b) condemns the Federal Government and its senior partner, the Australian Council of Trade Unions, for the continued strangling of the most productive sector of the community.

Senator Jones: To move on the next day of sitting-That the Senate-

(a) deplores the fact that 3 Australian rugby union international players, Glen Ella, David Campese and Roger Gould have arrived in South Africa to play in a seven-a-side tournament in Durban on Saturday, 12 October 1985;

(b) notes that there are persistent reports that 3 other Australian players are poised to join them;

(c) deplores the decision by these individual players, which can only give the oppressive white minority regime considerable comfort in its continued promotion of the internationally discredited apartheid regime;

(d) notes that the rugby union and cricket sporting visits have hurt the cause of black South Africans, and are against the spirit of the Gleneagles agreement; and

(e) urges the Australian rugby union and cricket authorities to impose the heaviest possible penalties on the players on their return.
