Snippets from a Press Release

Child-discipline bill wins support

By COLIN ESPINER and DAN EATON - The Press | Thursday, 3 May 2007

ACT MP Heather Roy told Parliament last night that opponents had been hoodwinked by Labour and its allies.

"This amendment is not a victory at all. Nothing at all changes with this amendment. Those parents who do this will still be criminals in the eyes of the law," she said.

"Sue Bradford and Helen Clark must be howling with derision. They have out-manoeuvred and out-lawyered opponents to the bill."
