Legislative Council: Tuesday, September 06, 2022


Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union

The Hon. J.S. LEE (Deputy Leader of the Opposition) (14:44): My question is to the Attorney-General regarding the CFMEU. Does the Attorney-General agree that disbanding the Australian Building and Construction Commission is akin to axing the tough cop of the beat and will embolden the CFMEU?

The Hon. K.J. MAHER (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Attorney-General, Minister for Industrial Relations and Public Sector) (14:45): I thank the honourable member for her question. No.
