Claims new Gov­ern­ment has too much time on its hands

The Dominion Post - - Politics -

In what might be an un­prece­dented move, the Gov­ern­ment voted against sev­eral closure mo­tions to end de­bate on its own Elec­tronic In­ter­ac­tions Re­form Bill on Wed­nes­day night. Shadow leader of the House Si­mon Bridges called it a ‘‘farce’’. ‘‘You have the Gov­ern­ment – in­clud­ing se­nior min­is­ters – fil­i­bus­ter­ing its own leg­is­la­tion be­cause it has so lit­tle for Par­lia­ment to de­bate and wants to avoid the em­bar­rass­ment of the House be­ing left with noth­ing to do.’’
