Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Porirua City Coun­cil is known for its quick meet­ings, but a new record may have been set on Au­gust 30 – 30 sec­onds. De­bate over the coun­cil’s en­dorse­ment of gay mar­riage was halted for half a minute be­cause a meet­ing of the Dis­trict Plan Com­mit­tee was sched­uled to be­gin at 9.30am. Its chair­man Tim Shep­pard didn’t twist his tongue once as he raced through the for­mal­i­ties to ad­journ the meet­ing. The mar­riage de­bate re­con­vened be­fore the clock showed 9.31am.
