MR BERRY (5.16): The Labor Party is opposed to this, because this is an outrageous abuse of process, one that you would expect from the Liberal Party but not from the Greens. The Greens profess to be soft-centred and members of the social justice movement who care about people and, most importantly, proper consideration of issues. They also claim to uphold due process. They also claim to care about people's social justice entitlements. One of the most important entitlements is a job. There are moves afoot to protect the jobs of around 100 people, as I recall. If this Bill is rushed through this evening, the attempts to preserve those 100 jobs are going to be lost. The Greens are going to have to wear the responsibility for that. People who voted for you expected you to protect their environment. An important part of their environment is being able to have a fair job. Ms Horodny smiles, as if she just could - - -

Mr De Domenico: She is happy.
