SCP HOUSE: First Private Members Day Today

Today is the first Private Members Day of the new Parliament, and with the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Bill seemingly having struck a shoal there now appears to be little chance the house will go into urgency this week.

Following question time today the house will move on to the regular Wednesday General Debate and then onto Private and Local Orders and Members Bills.

Scoop understands that the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park Bill has struck some opposition in Auckland and that work is underway to tidy up the loose ends. The bill is now not expected to be passed in time for the Americas Cup finals series starting on Saturday and may now be progressed next week instead. That said, Scoop sources say it may be progressed tomorrow depending how quickly progress is made.

The following are the first five bills on the top of the Private and Members Bill Order Paper that will be considered today.

Private and Local Orders:

1.Museum of Transport and Technology Bill, 123-2
