I thank Senator Tillem for that speech and I wonder if we could borrow a copy of it so I could make it available to the good voters of Western Australia for next Saturday week!

Today we have seen the Labor Party knock off a bill to knock off the carbon tax, the tax that cost so much and which is so important to the state of Western Australia. Here they are wanting to retain the mining tax that is so debilitating to jobs in Western Australia. I cannot believe that the Labor Party have any interest in winning senators from Western Australia, because these two actions to retain the carbon and mining taxes are very bad news for the people and economies of Western Australia. I hope Western Australians are watching.

Debate interrupted.
