The Government has brought the Urgency session to an end.
After Question Time, MPs completed the first reading of the Border Processing (Trade Single Window and Duties) Bill on a voice vote.
The Social Security (Fraud Measures and Debt Recovery) Amendment Bill also completed its first reading by 103 to 17 with the Greens, Maori Party and Mana opposed.
The Speaker then adjourned the House saying the Government did not intend dealing with the last two items in the Urgency motion – the second readings of the Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Bill and the Victims of Crime Reform Bill.
