The House of Representatives has passed the bill to replace the previous government's WorkChoices laws.

A Senate committee is now holding an inquiry into the bill.

The Coalition supported the bill on the basis that the Federal Government won a mandate at the last election.

Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard told the Opposition that people will expect them to take the same attitude in the Senate next year.

"We are not expecting that inquiry to be used to hold up the delivery of this bill and we are not expecting the Opposition in the Senate to play games to hold this bill up or to stop the delivery of what the Australian people wanted," she said.

"The Austraian people will be watching this process very, very carefully and they will be judging the Liberal Party by it."
