National accuses Government of trying to railroad anti-smacking bill

Thu-22-Mar-2007 4:44pm

National believes Labour is planning to railroad the so called
"anti-smacking bill" through Parliament by placing it under urgency.

The bill from Green MP Sue Bradford is in committee stage, following
long and drawn out debate last week that delayed a final vote until May.

In Parliament today, National's Gerry Brownlee called on the Government
to come clean about any short cuts it might try to take.

He also accused the Government of wanting to kill two birds with one
stone, by introducing other legislation at the same time.
