“The Australian Industry Group welcomes the public release by the Government and One Nation of amendments to the Ensuring Integrity Bill. In Ai Group’s view, the amendments would not substantially detract from the policy objectives of the Bill,” Ai Group Chief Executive, Innes Willox, said today.
“Even though we have not yet seen Centre Alliance’s amendments, from what has been discussed publicly it appears that their proposals would also not significantly detract from the policy objectives of the Bill.
“The Ensuring Integrity Bill is a vital piece of legislation. No organisation or individual can be allowed to act as though they are above the law. Organisations and individuals that comply with the law have nothing to worry about from this legislation.
“We urge all Senators to support the passage of the Bill during the next Parliamentary sitting which commences on Monday,” Mr Willox said.
