Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment Bill 2014 [No. 2]; Second Reading
Senator Conroy is like a bookend in speeches, isn't he? He starts at the beginning and sparks up and then goes back to sleep—through you, Madam Acting Deputy President. He has a little slumber and then, at the end, he perks up a little bit. We are the poorer for that, Senator Conroy. I really do think you could interject more, because you add a certain je ne sais quoi to the Labor Party's approach to this bill, and that is missing.
This government believes that the bill sets a suitably high standard for the governance of registered organisations. I call on those opposite to support the bill. (Time expired)
