Ayes 61 (National 59, ACT 1, United Future 1)

[Party vote on third reading—Ayes 61, Noes 60]


Bill read a third time.


Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER: As has become a recent tradition, it remains for the Speaker to bestow some awards. For the most articulate closure motion—Kanwaljit Singh Bakshi. For the most informative analytical speech—the first speech by David Seymour last night. The most good-natured protagonist was Phil Twyford. The least offensive speaker taking the most flak was Parmjeet Parmar. And the bloke having the most fun was Denis O’Rourke.


The House adjourned at 10.54 p.m. (Wednesday)
