  • The Opposition is endeavouring to create a distraction from the real agenda of this Parliament which is to end the lawlessness on the construction and building sites of Australia.

  • Fran Kelly: Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull joins us in our Parliament House studio. Prime Minister, welcome back to Breakfast.

  • Prime Minister: Good morning. Our industrial reform agenda continues this week. This is vital economic reform, this is economy boosting reform. You’ve seen the new tape, the new video and the threats on the Commonwealth Games site at the Gold Coast but this is happening everyday around Australia. This is the type of thuggery that has to stop.

  • I rise to conclude debate on these very important Bills. They will ensure the rule of law prevails in an industry that is essential to our economic growth and future prosperity.

  • I rise to update the House on the fight against Daesh. Mr Speaker, as honourable members are aware the Iraqi Prime Minister Haider Al-Abadi has announced that Iraqi Security Forces have commenced operations to liberate Mosul from the terrorist group, Daesh, or ISIL.
