Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Thank you, Mr Speaker. Today, the House will adjourn until Tuesday, 9 March. Legislation to be considered in that week will include the remaining stages of the Climate Change Response (Auction Price) Amendment Bill and the second readings of the Taxation (Annual Rates for 2021-21, Feasibility Expenditure, and Remedial Matters) Bill, the Local Government (Rating of Whenua Māori) Amendment Bill, and the Financial Market Infrastructure Bill. It is my intention that there be a member’s day on Wednesday, 10 March, and I’m hoping it’ll be a case of third time lucky.

CHRIS BISHOP (National): Thank you to the Leader of the House. Is it the Government’s intention to ever allow members’ notice of motion No. 1 to be debated?

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Of course, as an open-minded Government, we do consider things on a case by case basis. We have full confidence in the Speaker.

SPEAKER: No bills have been introduced—[Laughter from members] Well, you know, I didn’t want to be accused of cutting that debate off too quickly.
