I present a supplementary explanatory memorandum to the Fair Work Amendment Bill 2013 and move government amendment (1) on sheet BW301:

(1) Clause 2, page 2 (table item 6), omit the table item, substitute:

Again I believe this is broadly agreed in the House. The bill currently before the House provides that relevant provisions will commence on proclamation or not later than six months after royal assent. The amendment clarifies that the provisions will commence on 1 January 2014. This will provide certainty to all stakeholders, including employers, employees and the Fair Work Commission, about the operation and commencement of this important jurisdiction. (Quorum formed)

Question agreed to.
