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

  • Parental Leave and Employment Protection (Six Months Paid Leave) Amendment Bill (Sue Moroney)
  • Illegal Contracts (Unlawful Limitation on Regulators’ Powers) Amendment Bill (Lianne Dalziel)
  • Lobbying Disclosure Bill (Holly Walker)

Walker's bill (inherited from Sue Kedgeley) has been covered here.

There were a lot of new bills in the ballot today, especially from Labour, which now has 29 bills for 34 MPs. Many of those bills are reintroductions of bills raised last term, but there are some new ones as well which I'm looking forward to covering.

The full list is on Red Alert, here.
