A ballot for two Member's bills was held today and the following bills were drawn:

  • Sentencing (Protection of Children from Criminal Offending) Amendment Bill (Le’aufa’amulia Asenati Lole-Taylor)
  • Social Security (Clothing Allowances for Orphans and Unsupported Children) Amendment Bill (Tracey Martin)
The first is more law and order crap. The second closes a loophole in entitlements which sees orphans and unsupported children eligible for less assistance than those in foster care. Extended sitting hours meant Labour wasn't able to post the usual list on Red Alert, but it will appear here this afternoon.

Update: And the formal results are up here. 71 bills, which is enormous.
