Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Par­lia­ment has passed new pool fencing laws. Build­ing and Hous­ing Min­is­ter Nick Smith says the new rules will bet­ter pro­tect chil­dren from drown­ing in swim­ming pools. Smith says the most im­por­tant part of the new law is the com­pul­sory na­tion­wide re­quire­ment for all swim­ming pools to be in­spected and cer­ti­fied ev­ery three years. The new laws will take ef­fect on Jan­uary 1. Go to mbie.govt.nz for de­tails.
