Submissions extended

The Transport and Industrial Relations Committee has extended the deadline for submissions on the Immigration Bill from October 12 to November 2. So, if you haven't already, submit! This is an important bill, which goes well beyond a simple tidy-up and entrenches many of the most objectionable features of the Zaoui case in law. If you want a humane immigration system (one which makes it possible for kiwis who meet people overseas to live here with their partners, for example), then you might want to express your views.
