Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Today, the House adjourns until Tuesday, 22 June. On that day, the Ngāti Rangitihi Claims Settlement Bill will receive its first reading, and the Appropriation (2020/21 Supplementary Estimates) Bill will complete its remaining stages along with all stages of an imprest supply bill. Other legislation to proceed through further stages that week will include the Fair Trading Amendment Bill, the Gas (Information Disclosure and Penalties) Amendment Bill, the Health (National Cervical Screening Programme) Amendment Bill, the Intelligence and Security (Review) Amendment Bill, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Bill, and the Social Security (Financial Assistance for Caregivers) Amendment Bill. On Thursday, 24 June, the House will debate the report of the Education and Workforce Committee on its inquiry into student accommodation.

CHRIS BISHOP (National): I thank the Leader of the House for that update. I’d just ask him, in light of an interesting exchange in the Justice Committee this morning, what the Government’s intentions are in relation to three issues they have previously signalled legislation would be introduced on: three strikes, hate speech, and conversion therapy.

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): I can confirm the Government intends to progress all three of those issues.
