Courts Matters Bill and Tribunals Powers and Procedures Legislation Bill – Second Reading – Video 4


Meggy berry thank you madam Speaker I rise to speak to the court matters bill and tribunals powers and procedures legislation bill and its second reading and of course national supports us bill because it was conceived and just stated under our watch I I commend the member who’s introduced it to the house tonight but it’s got Amy Adams writ large all over it and when I look at a thorough and comprehensive approach which we are well used to on the side of the house dealing with Amy Adams how incredibly thorough she is and we see something that is worth modernizing the other side of the house may never modernize and this may be very fresh territory for them and arcane and unknown territory but modernizing and getting around things to ensure modern and efficient practices are used along with efficient courts and tribunals is very much what the former government was all about and so I do commend in his own way this member for bringing this piece to the house so the court matters bill one alone as some the crisp pink mentioned earlier means 14 acts the tribunals power and procedures legislation bill standardizes and modernizers something that would be unknown to mr. peters modernizing is something that he probably couldn’t even spell it alone so we have legislation that deals with that madam chair across 21 tribunals it has been alluded to before it is such an important area that I’ll bring it up again the buidlings flat land title’s commissioner now this has been noted by the opposition as a job that has been finished it has now moved on so the authority will be disestablished these are good things this is why national supports in the health boards of Appeal and the maritime appeal Authority also are probably unknown to members of this house because it was seldom used and its functions will instead be taken up by the district court and so when we work through some of the extraordinary rich detail of the amendments I couldn’t dwell for example on the real estate agents Act 2008 but I choose not to madam Speaker I would rather look at the Disputes Tribunal act and the clarification of the chief district court judge who is wholly responsible for rostering and training disputes referees others may Mock the detail of this legislation but it’s extremely important to the smooth workings of our judicial system I think updating the range of legislation that fails to keep pace with modern practice is something that the former national government concentrated on a lot coming up to speed with the twentieth-century practices as something that the Honorable Amy Adams was devoted to and I’m glad that the the now government is picking up on us because they are slow to acknowledge and embrace consistency transparency and efficiency and everything including the courts so it is good that they’ve picked this up I think the government has made a number of recent reforms to our justice system that will make that system far easier for people to deal with there will be less backlogs there will be less people waiting the inflicts the flexibility and responsiveness and transparency of our court system system depends on this piece of legislation going through and I think that some in in future calls I know the Honorable Mark Mitchell is right across the detail of this bill and will speak to it whether with a level of conviction that will astound an astonish this house because it is really something that he believes in implicitly and and to his core because he’s had a lot of experience in this unlike other members on the opposition who do not my colleague Chris Bishop has pointed out the justice committee worked long and hard on this and a lot of intellectual rigor and grunt grunt do ideas say that word in this house have done tremendous things my colleague is now nodding sagely having spent much of his youth embracing the changes that this piece of legislation is about to assure and it is very important that we modernize that we are thorough and comprehensive and I see unfortunately that’s up my time is almost up with this call and although I’m being robbed of you know a longer dissertation on the many many arcane and fascinating elements I can see poised on the opposite side of the house like a coiled spring with venom exuding from him about ready to pounce so I will commend the spills of the house madam Speaker because it came from us it makes sense by us and for us and it’s good for New Zealand so I commend this bill to the house thank you I call the Honourable acting prime I move an extension of time because we like a good joke over
