Government backs down on urgency

The government has appears to have backed down on forcing the Clark Section 59 repeal through under urgency.

Peter Brown of NZ First has told NewstalkZB that Cullen has withdrawn the request for urgency.?

In other Section 59 news, a Research New Zealand poll , which questioned 497 people, found that nearly three-quarters opposed the bill and believed it was unenforceable.

The poll showed 73 per cent of respondents disagreed or strongly disagreed with the bill's provisions.

It also showed that 72 per cent of those questioned thought the bill, if it was to be passed into law, would be unenforceable.

Given that poll plus all of the others one wonders why the government is so intent on whipping its members to support the bill??
