Member's Day

Today is an unscheduled Member's Day. It should have been yesterday, but that was eaten by urgency. But while ramming through the government's cancer promotion law, the House agreed to do Member's business today instead. First up is the first reading of Cushla Tangaere-Manuel's Local Government (Facilitation of Remote Participation) Amendment Bill. This will be followed by Todd Stephenson's Parole (Mandatory Completion of Rehabilitative Programmes) Amendment Bill, and Rima Nakhle's Corrections (Victim Protection) Amendment Bill. There'll be a ballot for a single bill later today, then another one next week to fill the new gap on the Order Paper.
