Member's Day

Today is a Member's Day. First up is the second readings of Ginny Andersen's Crimes (Child Exploitation Offences) Amendment Bill and Deborah Russell's Employment Relations (Extended Time for Personal Grievance for Sexual Harassment) Amendment Bill. Following that, the House should complete the first reading of Duncan Webb's Companies (Directors Duties) Amendment Bill. It should have time to make start on Rawiri Waititi's Electoral (Right to Switch Rolls Freely) Amendment Bill, though that might fall foul of Standing Order 268 (if its considered to be the "same in substance" as the government's Electoral (Māori Electoral Option) Legislation Bill, which received its first reading in June). In which case it'll be time for Chlӧe Swarbrick's Sale and Supply of Alcohol (Harm Minimisation) Amendment Bill. if the House moves really quickly on those second readings, it might even get up to Brooke van Velden's Housing Infrastructure (GST-sharing) Bill - but I doubt it.

There will probably be a ballot for at least one bill tomorrow.
