A ballot for three member's bills was held today, and the following bills were drawn:

  • Education (Board of Trustee Freedom) Amendment Bill (Roger Douglas)
  • Military Manoeuvres Act Repeal Bill (Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi)
  • Employment Relations (Probationary Period Repeal) Amendment Bill (Carmel Sepuloni)

Two of these bills have previously been covered in "In the Ballot", Douglas' here and Sepuloni's here. Judging from the title, Bakshi's bill repeals the obsolete Military Manoeuvres Act 1915, and is likely harmless.

There were six new bills, including Bakshi's. I'll try and put together an "In the ballot" post covering some of the newcomers later this afternoon.

The full list of bills is on Red Alert.
