Thanks to the postponement of Charles Chauvel's Credit Reforms (Responsible Lending) Bill, a ballot for member's bills was held today, and the following bill was drawn:

  • Crimes (Reasonable Parental Control and Correction) Amendment Bill (John Boscawen)

Well, that'll really put the cat among the pigeons.

There were three "new" bills in the ballot today: Darien Fenton's Employment Relations (Triangular Employment) Amendment Bill, and Roger Douglas' Parole (Truth in Sentencing) Amendment Bill, and Kennedy Graham's Climate Change (New Zealand Superannuation Fund) Bill. All have been in the ballot before (Douglas' bill as far back as 2005), and all have previously been covered in "In the ballot".

Next member's day is 9 September.
