Member's day

Today is a Member's day, the last one for the year. After some Questions to Members about a couple of bills, the House will consider Sue Moroney's doomed Parental Leave and Employment Protection (Six Months' Paid Leave) Amendment Bill, followed by the second readings of Pita Paraone's Sentencing (Protection of Children from Criminal Offending) Amendment Bill and Kennedy Graham's Register of Pecuniary Interests of Judges Bill, both of which are also expected to fail. We're still at least two member's days away from a ballot, so we're not going to see anything new on the Order Paper until February or so.
