Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (15:48): I seek leave to amend general business notice of motion No. 239 standing in my name and in the names of Senators Di Natale and Lambie for today, proposing the introduction of a bill.

The PRESIDENT: Is leave granted?

Senator Bushby: We haven't seen that.

Senator McGrath interjecting

The PRESIDENT: Senator Cameron, could you assist the Senate by indicating the nature of the amendment?

Senator CAMERON: Yes, Mr President. I amend the motion by inserting a hyphen in the short title of the bill between the words 'take' and 'home' to ensure uniformity between the use of the word in the principal act and the amending bill.

The PRESIDENT: Thank you, Senator Cameron. I gather there is clarity in the chamber now.

Leave granted.

Senator CAMERON: I, and also on behalf of Senators Di Natale and Lambie, move the motion as amended:

That the following bill be introduced: A Bill for an Act to amend the Fair Work Act 2009, and for related purposes. Fair Work Amendment (Protecting Take-Home Pay) Bill 2017 [No. 2].

Question agreed to.

Senator CAMERON: I present the bill and move:

That this bill may proceed without formalities and be now read a first time.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a first time.
