Financial Markets (Regulators and KiwiSaver) Bill

Auditor Regulation and External Reporting Bill

Procedure

Hon CHRISTOPHER FINLAYSON (Attorney-General) on behalf of the Leader of the House: Following discussion in the Business Committee yesterday, I seek leave for the Financial Markets (Regulators and KiwiSaver) Bill and the Auditor Regulation and External Reporting Bill to be treated as cognate bills and for the first reading debate on each bill to be taken together and, at the conclusion of the debate, for the questions on the first readings and the referral to a select committee to be put separately.

Mr SPEAKER: Is there any objection to that course of action being followed? There is none.
