Australian Building and Construction Commission
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.
