Debate resumed from 21 August, on motion by Mr Abbott:

That the bill be now read a second time.

upon which Mr Bevis moved by way of amendment:

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

(1) condemns the Government for further entrenching unfairness and bias in the industrial relations system;

(2) condemns the Government for excising provisions of the Workplace Relations Act 1996 and placing them into a separate Act; and

(3) calls upon the Government to withdraw the Bill and redraft it to provide for:

(a) the retention of provisions concerning registered organisations in the one Act together with all other industrial relations matters and including necessary improvements; and

(b) improvements to be reflected in amendments to be moved by the Member for Brisbane during the consideration of the Bill in detail”.
