he is just another opinion iron tonight where Mr Speaker I want to pick up on one of the points made by the green member the member from the Green Party sorry and and other members you can take offense note and other members across the house sir and that is one of a failed democracy a failed democratic process the member just talked about how the minister is now taking control is trying to expedite processes to meet their own in zoo and when I think about that democratic process this particular bill does have one other stage it has one more stage once it passes its third reading here in this house do is that it will go on royal assent to the governor-general and I hope that in that process she has some common sense although some of the questions being asked in this house today are being aren’t being answered by this government and I question whether or not any common sense exists whether on that side of the house or indeed in the final process of the spill when it goes to the governor-general sue and I’m really concerned a point of order in leas gala like I’m Mississippi I regret interrupting my colleague and but I believe I think he’s I think that what he just said which I don’t really want to repeat was it was a breach of standing order 118 and I think it’s an important point of principle that that we you know that we as members of the House don’t do what the member just stood and asked that you probably probably needs to withdraw and apologize no the members absolutely wrong was a quite proper reference [Music] thank you very much sir look the democratic process is all important to our people the people outside of these four walls are looking upon this institution to make sure that we get it right answer in this instance I argue that we haven’t I’m disappointed sir that the Maori Party isn’t in this house defending their position they talk about GM food regime sorry remember we must say he must not draw the attention of to the absence of members and especially when it’s a little one it’s it’s also an accurate now sir I’m reminded of the hard work done by a group of people on what’s known as the Y 262 it’s a claim made to the Waitangi tribunal on which a very good report was given the recommendations from that reporter very clear about genetic modification sir and they give a perspective amore perspective on the GM matter which is a very serious one to this country sadly the Maori Party did not consult with those experts nor do they even look at why 262 when they considered their position on the GM meta with this bill sir so they’re gone and supported it and now what they have sadly done for the rest of the country for Maori them in particular sir has have thrown a dummy to the people they’ve actually gone with two concessions agreed to supporting this particular built through the house without looking at all of all the entirety of the actual bill because there are other things in there I’m sure that our people would be concerned about one of those was part for Sue and I take the Green Party’s point made last night during the committee stage of the house about part 4 of the bill which actually gives far too much power suit to the Minister for those who are looking to apply for license or renew license for mining in this country and idea say that those people has referred to our mentioned by my colleague mikha fight City who are out now protesting out on the ocean for the seismic testing that’s going out there going on out there I bet you those people won’t be very happy with the support of this bill to see it go through part 4 hasn’t even been mentioned by the support parties of this government and it is a huge concern to me sir i also want to talk about sir housing housing sue it was mentioned by the minister at the beginning that in order for us to meet the housing demands and the housing krish’s of this country that we must make significant reforms like this and in part i do agree with that sir i do however it must go through a robust debate consideration from right across the house but more importantly a bipartisan approach across this house to make sure that it has the full support of this house y su because the rip we represent electorate’s across the country mine in particular and tamaki makoto where the housing crisis is felt at the moment and has been for a number of years now we are screaming out for more homes however we don’t think that we should be conceding proper process robust legislation in order just to meet that demand so in conclusion sir we can’t support this bill thank you
