2. Hon CLAYTON COSGROVE (Labour—Waimakariri) Link to this
to the Member in charge of the Electoral (Disqualification of Sentenced Prisoners) Amendment Bill
Does he intend proposing any changes to the Electoral (Disqualification of Convicted Prisoners) Amendment Bill as reported back from the select committee; if so, what?
Whether I propose any changes to the bill will depend on whether any changes are required to achieve the purpose.
Does the member agree that had the chair of the Law and Order Committee, Sandra Goudie, not blocked the Ministry of Justice from advising on this bill when requested to by Opposition members of the select committee, the mistakes in this reported-back bill could have been avoided?
