Legislation Bill- First Reading – Video 7


if they run out I call Derek Paul thank you madam Speaker over the last two or three weeks I’ve had quite a rude awakening about the realities of being a backbench government MP and the expectations of one’s position there’s a backbench government MP I made it quite clear to all of my colleagues last two mitts got three years that in no way would I stoop to the level of asking petsy questions in this house and yet it seems I’m the only one that is asking petty questions from our party and not only that madam Speaker but I’ve had the pleasure of for want of a beard to him of speaking on a few bills that’s a fire in the last couple of weeks one was the statutes amendment bill the other was law of tort bill and now we’re talking about the legislation bill and it’s been quite a treat actually madam Speaker and the previous labor remember that spoke hurry on actually got to level of quoting the Oxford Dictionary in regards to this legislation and now we’ve got the National Party was standing up and talking about themselves right about the bill and that means that we’ve stooped to lowest level of creativity and entertainment in what is obviously in the face of quite some dry legislation however it’s often the dry legislation madam Speaker that is often the most important because it deals with the things that people don’t really realize will understand or things that go around and the background that actually do affect it repeat every day people throughout their lives and this is actually one of them one of the good things about speaking on bills that you don’t know anything about is that you end up learning quite a lot about something that’s important and one of these things and it has be acknowledged that the Honorable Christian’s actually noted as well that this is actually a bill that was put through last to him through the National coab national government through the Honorable crystal air Christopher Mason and it has cross pay support and always that even though the legislation isn’t the most simplest or the easiest to understand and that’s why it’s quite important to understand that it is important because it deals is one of the most important aspects of running in any government in a modern and robust democracy and that’s open and transparent government and the key to that in the case of the situation of what it tries to instill madam Speaker is by enabling easy access to the law and it might seem like a simple intent like I said as when you look at it in the intent but the way in which this bill and the the size of the issue and the problem the breadth of the issue and the problem that is trying to be addressed is quite large and quite huge and so it’s quite a good thing that the the coalition labor new zealand fierce government is getting crook for christmas madam Speaker most the most important thing that this bill actually addresses or enables is the fact that it’s it actually affects ordinary Kiwis especially as small businesses and it gives some access to not only the the knowledge of the law and the obligations that they are required to meet but most important I believe is the the rights that they have as well and the biggest problem that the the situation is trying to address is when it boils down to it there is no central register of delegated legislation and what this will do it will allow access to that secondary legislation that has been made first of all identify what it actually is because at the moment there is the way identifying there clearly is quite ambiguous and most importantly what parts of those legislation as enforce and again it comes down to obligation and rights in fact two inquiries no no it’s already mentioned previously by the minister that two inquiries have actually identified this as being a huge issue one by the Productivity Commission and the second was a government inquiry into the whey protein botulism scare and it was actually quite amazing to understand or to comprehend or to find out that the dairy industry just the dairy industry itself the regulations are touching on 12,000 pages and I think that the scariest point of that was made by the the chair of the of that inquiry was that they weren’t even sure whether they had found it all that and they didn’t know so if you know if some organization can’t get or doesn’t understand whether they get all of that and identify all of a secondary legislation then how can we expect ordinary Kiwis – madam Speaker I think that one of the if we break down the legislation into what the bill or what are the benefits that the bill would bring there’s a number of things it will enhance the ability of individuals and businesses to find a law that applies to them which is sounds like it’s pretty simple and it should have been happening in the first place but it hasn’t been to this point in regards to this part of the legislation it will enhance Riegler design and lead to be religious little schemes a result more efficient oversight of the regulatory regimes and it will assist New Zealand to meet any transparent transparency requirements which is important on the international trade and investment agreements cement and the way that it will achieve this madam Speaker will be to sweep away the existing confusing definitions of legislative instruments require all secondary legislation to be presented to the house provide for narrow XP patience for the duty to present legislation to their house requires an agency that makes music and registration to notify it to PCO provides transition or arrangements for existing secondary legislation to be captured and republished and also does not apply to second realization made by local authorities one of the most important benefits of this legislation madam Speaker is the fact that it improves the oversight and the scrutiny of the regulatory regimes and it’s been noted that their regulations Review Committee have voiced their frustrations over a number of years and regards to this and this bill goes a long way to fixing those concerns or addressing those concerns so in essence and in conclusion and in summary madam Speaker the bill will define what will be classified as sikandra legislation which is very important it will implement a system to streamline the process for the notification publication and presentation or the second-row legislation and this will in turn improve the accessibility of the law it will improve institutional understanding of regulatory rights obligations and the improvement of these areas will have a flow-on effect of very compliance and more business efficiency and for those reasons I commend this bill to the house thank you Oh mister madam Speaker I call Chris sufficient well thank you madam Speaker
