Urgency on anti-smacking bill dumped

26/03/2007 19:28:02

The government has confirmed that it will no longer seek urgency on Sue Bradford's anti-smacking bill.

Labour had been seeking support for the final stages of the private member's bill to be considered under urgency on Wednesday.

But a spokesman for the office of Deputy Prime Minister Michael Cullen says that will no longer happen.

Amendments to Sue Bradford's bill will still be debated by Parliament on Wednesday.
