Labor is not a defender of criminal or thug-like behaviour, as we have made clear many times in this chamber, and in public notice. We do not tolerate intimidation or bullying. If criminal conduct has taken place, Labor condemns it. However, it is not proper for the Liberal-Nationals government to use allegations of criminal conduct to pursue a political campaign against its opponents. If there is evidence of crime it should be immediately reported to the police for investigation. Labor and the union movement are consistently supporters of White Ribbon, as can be seen. We support lawful process and do not tolerate bullying or intimidation.
