That the Senate—
(a) recognises the positive contribution to productivity, inflation, gross domestic product and days lost through industrial action of the Australian Building and Construction Commission; and
(b) affirms the need for a tough cop on the beat with power to compel information in order to keep the building and construction industry free of thuggery, intimidation and illegality.
The Senate divided. [13:02]
(The President—Senator Hogg)
Senator Wong did not vote, to compensate for the vacancy caused by the resignation of Senator Coonan.
