Because of the inappropriate detail contained within the motion—and I will not go specifically to that detail—the government does not support this motion. The government, however, acknowledges the work of the Hon. John Lloyd as the first Commissioner of the Australian Building and Construction Commission. Mr Lloyd’s appointment expired on 28 September 2010. On Tuesday this week the government announced that Mr Leigh Johns would replace Mr Lloyd as commissioner. The government is committed to reintroducing the Building and Construction Industry Improvement Amendment (Transition to Fair Work) Bill 2009 as an early priority.
