Mr BEAZLEY (Leader of the Opposition) (9:31 AM) —I move:

That so much of the standing and sessional orders be suspended as would prevent order of the day No. 4, private members business, on the Notice Paper standing in the name of the Member for Brisbane relating to the Employment Security Bill 2001 being called on forthwith as part of a package of measures to secure employee entitlements through:

(1) the recovery of employee entitlements lost in cases of insolvency involving artificial corporate re-structuring; and

(2) a related scheme consisting of an employer funded insurance scheme which guarantees 100 per cent of employees entitlements following corporate collapses.

So far only the Stan Howard stand-alone scheme has, in fact, seen 100 per cent of workers' entitlements guaranteed. Whatever happened to honest John?

Motion (by Mr Anthony) put:

That the member be not further heard.
