A member's bill that would make casinos pay back money received as a result of criminal activity has failed to get the support of Parliament.
The bill, sponsored by the Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei, was voted down 61 votes to 57 on Wednesday.
The bill would have amended the Criminal Proceeds Recovery Act to ensure that the proceeds of crime spent in, and laundered through, casinos are recovered.
Meanwhile, a member's bill to protect young workers has also failed to get the support of Parliament by 61 votes to 58.
