Crown Minerals Amendment Bill – First Reading – Video 6


and I commend the progress of the spill to the house I call Melissa Lee thank you madam Speaker and I’d like to commend the yeah member who just took a seat doing ten minutes on a very small and minor technical bill is actually a feat indeed I was sitting madam Speaker I’m obviously not going to take 10 minutes to filibuster because all parties are actually an agreement I think I was sitting outside in the lobby just waiting and doing some other work and I actually heard Debra Russell speaking earlier and I just want to respond to her before I actually get on with this bill madam Speaker I think she said she said quite a few things but I think there was one thing that she said that actually pricked my ear up and as she was talking about how businesses don’t like uncertainty I think she actually said that businesses don’t like uncertainty and I think on this side there was a few chuckles and we have to actually agree businesses don’t like uncertainty I definitely agree with to that and and the thing is that the oil and gas exploration industry taranaki got the message of certainty from this government that they don’t back the industry they don’t back the region and they don’t care about the regional economic growth or the development it doesn’t actually care about the 11,000 jobs that it literally killed off with the government’s announcement to our dismay the economic future of taranaki and the oil and gas exploration I know I’m a little bit emotional because I thought hang on a minute she makes sense she’s talking about you know businesses needing certainty that’s right they do but the kind of message that this government sends is the wrong certainty that they’re delivering for a region that they apparently care about back to the bill madam Speaker I know I get a little bit excited I got I sort of got this synopsis from the from the library it’s the debate pack and this crown minerals bill 2018 makes minor and technical clarification to the crown minerals Act of 1991 and we should always do that we need to update our legislation you know every so often and how you know in terms of the kind of information it gives me is that it changes things like the duration of the permit the timeframes of notifying the revocation of the permit process relating to changes of controller permit participants permit classification it just seems like they’re talking about permits permits permits but the thing that really sort of pricked my sort of ear again was this whole issue of when the changes are not notified to the minister that it actually has monetary impact on the company up to $800,000 that when an Minister for energy and resources is actually not notified I think that has to be a big deterrent for the companies to not break the role and I know I’m speaking slightly longer than I I was meant to and it actually reminded me of a recent event that actually happened in my birth country in April 27 the two Koreas actually came together in a inner summit big summit first time the North Korean leader actually crossed the border and actually came together and this particular segment that actually reminded me is there a way that we could actually put monetary sort of penalty on any of those the two countries you know whether North Korea or South Korea if they actually break the the spirit that they actually come together in the peace process and I wish Korea the best of luck but I commend the minister as the parties involved we are all in support so I commend the bill to the house and look forward to the submissions in the Select Committee call Gareth use Ackerman was speaking nama he knew in Kyoto Kyoto
