moving forward Kauai incoming Thank You mr. speaker um I’ll take a brief call on the second reading of this bill with a very long name it’s awful amazing how often legislation comes to this house that’s caused by the action of a single person or or or of one or two people and this piece of legislation and I listen to David Clendon earlier speaking about the complex complex disease of it because a very simple issue is actually quite a complex issue and it’s quite complex when you start to follow the the process that the law takes to get to the point of designing this new piece of legislation so it was very complicated how to understand some of the connections between the various departments and the various pieces of this legislation that made it up in the end and and I certainly of a great deal of pleasure and supporting because I think it’s hugely important for New Zealand and if you think about us leaving our crumbs hop out of that prison or wherever in there and leave the country it really is damaging to our international reputation and we don’t want our international reputation damaged by one or two people who get away with things they shouldn’t get away with and of course the documentation or the reasons for for this bill have been well documented by many others and the house already so I’m not going to talk about that at length but I do think international reputation is a pretty important thing to to understand that we need to protect and this piece of legislation goes a little way towards doing that there’s no simple way from what I’ve seen in my time in this house of fixing any problem and so again to go back to David Clemen there was never going to be an easy way of fixing this challenge for for the government and and I think that this bill is as good as solution as we were ever going to get to that why don’t you of the other things that I found quite interesting with it that those people who are being who were being managed by a probation office for example could come and go as they wished and that seems extraordinary to me that we’ve got people that are serving sentences for bunsall community centres for for one sort of crime or another could pop up and leave the country without even getting permission from their probation officer that little loophole has been tied up now and they’ve got you know written permission if I wish to leave the country I’m not sure which country would want to have them but but that sort of things being tidied up and and lastly my speak I just want to go very briefly into the issue of biometric doubted because frankly we’re we go in the world if we don’t give away voluntarily out there I’m a biometric data it’s nicked off us by something in the sky anyway so so I don’t think that there’s any threat to privacy render sort of thing because that’s just the way the world operates now and whether we like it or not and we aren’t going to change it and so we’re driven by by the actions of almost every other country in the world who as we go through the borders collect all the stuff on us whether we like it or not and so I think that’s just part of the way we need to behave nowadays and I think it’s also hugely important that out that our departments that are dealing particular in this instance we’re they’re dealing with people who have a criminal conviction of one sort or another often that they have the ability to share that information so that we don’t get a repeat of what happened in the case of Philip Smith and so mr. figure I’ve got a great deal of confidence this bill will make a difference and I’ve got a I’ll say a pleasure now and committing it to the house and look forward to going through the committee stages through its final reading thank you speaking Mr Speaker I call Kelvin Davis Thank You mr. speaker and let’s
