Clause 230 agreed to.

Remainder of bill, by leave, taken as a whole and agreed to.

MR SPEAKER: The question now is that this bill, as amended, be agreed to.

MS GALLAGHER: (Molonglo—Chief Minister, Minister for Health and Minister for Industrial Relations) (5.43): I will not take up any more time. I would just like to put on the record my thanks to the staff of the Office of Industrial Relations who have been working on this for a couple of years now. Thank you very much for all your work that you have done, including the briefings that you have provided to members in this place. Also, I extend my thanks to Garrett Purtill in my office, who has lived and breathed this bill from an early stage as well.

I would also like to thank Assembly members. Whilst we have not always agreed, we have passed some good legislation, I think, that will protect workers and make doing business—

Mrs Dunne: We haven’t passed it yet.

MS GALLAGHER: Well, we are about to pass some legislation which will protect workers but also make doing business in this area just that little bit easier. So I do thank members for their contributions today.
