pedicure Bridget are the next calls or split call mojo Methos five mats thank you I like to speak to the family and fan Overland both I commend the minister bourbon in this bill to the house other speakers have addressable and spoken about while it’s needed and so they the concern that it does not go far enough what I wanted to do is talk about a very specific floor that has very deep personal significance to me which is that the bird includes 3.8 update the definition of family violence to increase harm a treatment to pit as part of that definition and recognizes that I psychological abuse under no doubt that that change is needed in 2012 there was a groundbreaking report by the SPCA and them in very good Peppa porn which are booked of public life the prevalence of cruelty and harm the family put as a means of controlling partners and children in violent family situation and more than half of the respondents had partnered to a certain or actually harmed a family put more than a third had had a family pet code by at some point and never put acquired the psychological impact of that on both partners incision and it is grab tied with some woman who could not lose their partner for fear that their loved family pet would be killed and this is something that close to my heart because I know personally the harm that that cool when I was nine years old my grandmother gave me a cotton with a beautiful tabby kitten with white paws and a pink no I can see that cut and now in front of my life and of course lapua nine us is and I loved that kitten and I played with it whenever I come home from school and I know that kitten mittens which is not very original and all but one day I came from some bull Amata me was not dear because during a family argument a member with my mother a member of the family has taken a piece of wood and baths my couldn’t under hood to show how angry they were and it could Mike Adam and of course I was devastated at nine years old and I was upset at you can imagine only nine year old child could be but the consequences of that and more than the period that I said on the day because they’ve become the deep and abiding fear of what people will do of members of own family who were meant to keep these days we do when they’re angry I want to control other members of the family and they’re an innocent animal appeared to be harmed in this way is outrageous and so it was a well overdue for this to be recognized in the definition of family violence to work at night that this is Falco logical abuse and that need to be recognized in the court in application for protection orders and so on that actually it was an incredibly controlling mechanism done very pleased to see this in the bill and I applaud the minister Patek making these changes that would be very interesting to see where other story come out select committee of and bhangra Berlin burned and buried multi-factor that suffer in New Zealand I call well short Nash five minutes
