David Parker’s SOP which New Zealand first will support and that’s the one relating to mr. speaker mr. chairman mr. chairman our broker ago i’m going to call out skip and browning thank you sorry got a bit dizzy standing up and down so many times Thank You mr. chair as a rise to speak to the resource legislation amendment bill and the particular parts i do want to speak to as the issues around forestry and whether it’s a crop the parts to do with genetic modification and i’m pleased about the support Maremma Fox’s view around forestry the forestry rights Registration Act 1983 defines a crop as a single crop of one or more species or multiple crops and if she’s made a deal and thought forestry was in it well the forestry rights Registration Act 1983 certainly supports it it is supported in law as a definition of crop but I am concerned about where this is going and what the ministers and tintas the minister tried first to get it through the National Environment standard plantation forestry and that was a in its umpteenth iteration to try and deal with the sedimentation ‘he’s sedimentation that coming down into our rivers in spoiling our fisheries and the likes and we’re waiting to see this latest iteration but the last time it was slid in that GE trees if approved by the EPA could be it would be put in as permitted activity in all regions including hawkes bay for up in the Northland and Auckland where they had very very clearly said they didn’t want 18,000 people plus submitted against that clause and the National Environment standard plantation forestry and here we have it almost seems an intent to slide it through yet a different way there is no vision going down that track New Zealand going down a GE track would be lacking vision in this legislation if it takes us down that track would be a failure the minister has got as man at the head of the EPA the chief executive he be the one that puts these things through mr. Allen free-throw dr. Ellen freath when he was worth wrightson order we’re on the RMA come here on the RMA and there’s Holly I’m on my finger come back to the RMA Stephan Brenner thank you the aspects of decision-making that cause 360 d and e cos 26 would be referring to would be about how decisions made by the EPA could be put in imposed by the EPA and its staffs decision-making processes through to the minister and so it’s important as to who is staffing there it is absolutely critical and if they are puppets for the industry it is incorrect I’ll terminate the speech if you carry on like that I’ve told you to concentrate on the RMA what’s in the bowl we don’t get into personalities of of people who are working in different organizations Stefan browning the environmental risk management authority and nellie EPA has made various decisions around genetic modification and every one of the consents had been breached every one of the conditions so not every one of the controls but controls and every one of those field trials have been breached it is hard to have confidence that this legislation will protect regions will protect the country from further breaches and then we’d have to say who’s going to look out for the vision for New Zealand if we go down that track the grasses that we think need to be included in the crops they’ve had more than 50 million be going on to it’s a hundred million of resources from the taxpayer and they have not been proven to work we must move away from that sorry mr. chair I’m going to call me kho phi q Thank You mr. chair
