The Day In Parliament for 15 October 2015 - morning edition

From In Parliament, 5:45 am on 15 October 2015

Members' Day sees mixed luck for Opposition MPs: Clayton Cosgrove's Keep Kiwibank Bill has passes first reading and is sent to the Finance & Expenditure Select Committee; Adrian Rurawhe's Official Information (Parliamentary Under-Secretaries) Amendment Bill also passes first reading - sent to the Government Administration Committee; Meanwhile, Carmel Sepuloni's Social Workers Registration (Mandatory Registration) Amendment Bill and Phil Goff's Education (Charter Schools Curriculum) Amendment Bill both fail to pass their first hurdles; Former MP Maryan Street makes submission to inquiry into euthanasia and Labour's Sue Moroney presents her paid parental leave bill. Government uses Question Time and General Debate to pat itself on the back; Jonathan Coleman runs into trouble with the Speaker.
