Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): Next week, legislation to be considered will include the remaining stages of the Moriori Claims Settlement Bill and the Crown Minerals (Decommissioning and Other Matters) Amendment Bill. On Thursday there will be a special debate on the report of the Environment Committee on its inquiry into the Natural and Built Environments Bill: Parliamentary Paper. I’ve notified the Business Committee that I intend to move urgency on Tuesday for a bill concerning the next stage of the response to COVID-19. If urgency finishes by 1 p.m. on Wednesday, that afternoon will be a members’ day.

Hon MICHAEL WOODHOUSE (National): I thank the Leader of the House for that update. In the Business Committee, the chair of the committee invited the Minister responsible for the traffic light bill to share a draft with the spokespeople for COVID-19 response in other parties, and I wonder if he will be taking up that invitation.

Hon CHRIS HIPKINS (Leader of the House): The bill has not been finalised yet, but once we have a bill, if I’m in a position to do so I’ll certainly make sure that a copy is circulated.
