Spies In Committee And A Maiden Speech

Published: Tue 6 Aug 2013 10:38 AM
The Government intends progressing legislation relating to the intelligence security services when Parliament resumes today, though it is expected to face a filibuster from those who oppose it.
Following Question Time, MPs are scheduled to debate the committee stage of the Government Communications Security Bureau and Related Legislation Amendment Bill.
Last week the bill completed its second reading by 61 to 59 with National, ACT and Peter Dunne in favour.
The Opposition has indicated it will seek to delay the bill through a filibuster due to its objections to the bill.
Debate will be interrupted at 5.45 for Meka Whaitiri’s maiden speech.
