The order of the day having been read for the resumption of the debate on the question—That the Bill be now read a second time—

Debate resumed by Mr McClelland who moved, as an amendment—That all words after "That" be omitted with a view to substituting the following words:

"whilst not denying to give the bill a second reading, the House condemns the Government for:

(1) further reducing workplace democracy by removing the right of employees to vote on whether a certified agreement should not apply following a transmission of business; and

(2) further increasing job insecurity by enabling the termination of certified agreements, without employee consent, in corporate restructuring and contracting out".

Debate continued.

It being 2 p.m., the debate was interrupted in accordance with standing order 101A, and the resumption of the debate made an order of the day for a later hour this day.
