Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Legislation to be considered next week will include the first readings of the Racing Industry Bill and the Urban Development Bill; the third reading of the National Animal Identification and Tracing Amendment Bill (No 2); and the further stages of the Venture Capital Fund Bill, the Education (Pastoral Care) Amendment Bill, the Terrorism Suppression (Control Orders) Bill, the Maritime Transport (Offshore Installations) Amendment Bill, and the Credit Contracts Legislation Amendment Bill.

Hon GERRY BROWNLEE (National—Ilam): I thank the Leader of the House for that list of the Government’s intentions for next week. Can he tell us if, in the next two weeks before the House lifts, the Government intends putting the House into further urgency for bills as yet unmentioned?

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): That will depend on how much progress the House makes on the bills that I’ve listed down. I’m sure that with the Opposition’s cooperation further urgency is unlikely to be required.
