Possible Urgency Next Week As Deadlines Loom

by Desk Editor on Thursday, June 21, 2012 — 2:28 PM

The House will sit extended hours next week or potentially go into Urgency to meet the deadlines for a number of bills, Leader of the House Gerry Brownlee.

Brownlee said in his Business Statement to MPs that the Government would next week seek to pass the Appropriation (2011/12 Supplementary Estimates) Bill and an Imprest Supply Bill. It also wanted to complete the three hour debate on the performance and current operations of Crown entities, public organisations and State enterprises, as well as pass the Prisoners’ and Victims’ Claims (2012 Expiry and Application Dates) Amendment Bill, as all those items of business had to be completed by June 30.

It would also be desirable to pass the Dairy Industry Restructuring Amendment Bill ahead of a farmer vote on issues covered by the bill.

Because of this and the Government’s desire to complete the passage of the Mixed Ownership Model Bill the Government would seek to sit under extended hours on Wednesday morning and if necessary move an Urgency motion.

No items were table and MPs began Question Time.
