Members' Day

Today is a Members' Day, and it looks like the log-jam of later stages is finally beginning to clear. First up there's the third reading of Jan Logie's Domestic Violence—Victims’ Protection Bill, which looks certain to pass. After that there's the second reading of Parmjeet Parmar's Newborn Enrolment with General Practice Bill. And if the House gets through those, then it should have time to wrap up the first reading of her Patents (Advancement Patents) Amendment Bill, and might make a start on Todd Muller's Companies (Clarification of Dividend Rules in Companies) Amendment Bill (a classic "what matters to rich people" bill from National). And if that happens, there might even be a ballot tomorrow.
