a position and this bill for all those reasons should not pass New Zealand first will vote against it yeah BK I called every bailing Thank You mr. speaker before I start I do wanna just to acknowledge what’s been going on particularly in my electorate of Hanoi but also in West Auckland and coromandel with the extreme floods that we’ve had up there just want to acknowledge the fantastic work of all the fire services the police and all and the contractors clearing the roads etc and the way the community all came together to help one another mr. speaker and I just want to pick up a little bit around what the former speaker of previous peak has just been raising and he made the claim that New Zealand first came to the slick chimeric air committee hearings willing to consider the spill constructively so Mr Speaker I do just want to point out that I understand that the right honorable Winston Peters walks around Northland telling everyone that he would support nestled in passing our RMA bill now why is it that when I read the report from New Zealand first that they are opposed to eventually everything in this bill not one thing virtually everything mr. speaker I’ve got to say if we’re talking about how we say and keep a word this is something that national is continuing to do with us fill now I just want to spend a little bit of time about the manner ahora Dora he or otherwise known as the Erie participation agreements so mr. speaker case law or courts have previously determined that we have a right to be involved in consents that is a long established legal precedent that has been tested and as a legal issue as case law now one of the other things that courts are defined that they have a right to be entitled to be volved and consents not enforcement and not on monitoring but they have a legal right to be involved in consents so what does bill seeks to achieve is to actually clarify those rights and what it does is that sets out the arrangement which either party been either the council or the Eyrie or the hapu by which they may enter into an agreement now Mr Speaker I use the word made and the word may is actually in the bill it’s not a compulsory thing and furthermore there is no illegal obligation on the council to actually sign an agreement with an eerie or happy so unfortunately some members of the committee in this house do not spend the time looking at a bill mr. speaker so mr. speaker one other thing I just want to draw your attention to there is a specific clause in the bill that precludes any possibility which some members have asserted that councils will be held to ransom if they do not sign the agreement there is a specific clause in the bill that says that here we cannot continue to withhold consent from consents while negotiation process is underway now mr. speaker those are very powerful conditions and clauses set out in this bill but unfortunately a lot of the debates that we hear from members of this house is ill informed and a in fact worse than that mr. speaker worsened been ill informed but just downright mischievous are the over the next cause us but called Julia Engen 25 minutes
