Last night, the Australian Parliament abolished the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal and both of the Orders it has made.  The vote result was 36 v 32.

This morning, the Prime Minister will travel in a prime mover from Parliament House to the Governor General’s residence to request ‘royal ascent’.

In accordance with normal Australian legislative procedure, the change will officially take effect 48hrs after the Governor General grants ‘royal ascent’ and signs the bill into law i.e. 21 April 2016.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has recently issued a formal statement that a fair and reasonable approach to enforcement of the 2014 and 2016 Orders will be taken.

Further updates will be issued following the ATA National Council assembly in Canberra Wednesday 20th April 2016.
