Oh my goodness! Senator McEwen really is behind the times. I thought that was part of Senator Day's first question in this place, and I answered that at the time. It is there on the Hansard record for the honourable senator to read. I am sure that Senator Day will have more to say about these matters in his first speech, which I wish him all the best for, tomorrow evening at about five o'clock. Having said that, Mr President, at the time that the good Senator Day asked me a question about this, I indicated exactly the same response as I gave to Senator McEwen in relation to her substantive question, and that is: we hear what people are saying in the community, but the appropriate place for this to be ventilated and determined is the independent Fair Work Commission.
