The Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, Jan Wright, has accused a select committee reviewing the Emissions Trading Scheme of ignoring her and other evidence against its proposals.
The committee's report, which is expected to become law, has been criticised for extending special breaks for agriculture and big business.
Dr Wright says the bill sets the wrong path for New Zealand, and she is very disappointed.
"This is about having an Emissions Trading Scheme in place that is effective," she says, "and we now have one in place that will have very, very limited effectiveness and has locked in subsidies to to the worst emitters indefinitely."
