Government fails to pass another law

Opponents hail shelving of Therapeutics Bill – 16 Jul 2007 – Political News – New Zealand Herald

The government has been forced into an embarrassing backdown, having to shelve the Therapeutics Bill due to a lack of support.

The failure to get the numbers for its Therapeutics Products and Medicines Bill shows that the Labour Government is increasingly a lame duck government. Not even Rodney’s great leapfrog project could save them.

This is from memory the third bill that has been quietly shelved by Labour. One wonders how they manage to cobble the numbers together to pass supply bills.
