Member's Day

Today is a Member's Day, though it is unlikely to be an exciting one. The top of the Order paper is dominated by three local bills, which are unlikely to be controversial. After that, there's the third reading of Michael Woodhouse's entirely uncontroversial and widely supported Fair Trading (Soliciting on Behalf of Charities) Amendment Bill. If the House manages to whizz through all of those speedily, it might get to discuss Kennedy Graham's Register of Pecuniary Interests of Judges Bill - which likewise has broad support.

And if they manage all that, we will finally have a ballot tomorrow. It will be a biggie - almost 60 bills - and include some controversial legislation (e.g. marriage equality) that I'd love to see drawn. Otherwise, I guess we'll just have to hang on for two more sitting weeks before giving the fun stuff a chance to come out.
