National: Gov’t may try new tactics to rush bill through now = new Date();hour = 15;var tag = “”; if (hour > 12) {hour = hour – 12;tag = “pm”;} else if (hour== 12){tag = “pm”;} else {tag = “am”;} document.write(“Tue-27-Mar-2007 ” + hour + “:29” + tag); Tue-27-Mar-2007 3:29pm Tue-27-Mar-2007 3:29pm


National says the Government has got another card up its sleeve in its bid to fast-track the so-called anti-smacking bill through Parliament.

Yesterday, Labour abandoned plans to pass Sue Bradford’s bill under urgency, saying it had caused ructions in New Zealand First, which was split on the issue.

National says the lack of business set down for Parliament today is the lightest in 10 years and that the Government may have cleared it for a reason.

Gerry Brownlee believes Labour will try to turn the private members bill into a government one so that it could quickly become law.

The Government has denied the claims.
