BUSINESS STATEMENT

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Minister of Education): Today, the House will adjourn until Tuesday 15 October. In that week, legislation to be considered by the House will include the first reading of the Te Ture Whenua Maori (Succession, Dispute Resolution, and Related Matters) Amendment Bill, the committee stages of the Corrections Amendment Bill and the Conservation (Indigenous Freshwater Fish) Amendment Bill, and the third reading of the Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill (No 2).

Hon GERRY BROWNLEE (National—Ilam): Has the Leader of the House been asked to set aside time when the House resumes in two weeks’ time to pass a bill that would enable all remaining stages of the Rugby World Cup to go free to air in real time, as promised by the Deputy Prime Minister?

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Minister of Education): Of course, that bill currently sits on the Order Paper. It is a members’ order of the day and I think, when the member’s opposite stop filibustering another bill listed under the members’ order of the day, they might finally get to it.

Hon GERRY BROWNLEE (National—Ilam): I raise a point of order, Mr Speaker. I seek leave for item No. 8 on the members’ order of the day, Broadcasting (Games of National Significance) Amendment Bill (No 2), to go to the top of the members’ day agenda for the next members’ day?

SPEAKER: Is there any objection to that? There is.
