The House will sit on Thursday and Friday mornings to consider these bills.
Green Party list member, Kevin Hague will make his valedictory statement at 5.45pm on Tuesday.
The first three or four Government orders of the day will be what the House debates each day. You can find these on the latest Order Paper, although the order of business can change until the final Order Paper is published at 10:30am on the sitting day.
After question time on Wednesday, 21 May, the House will consider bills put forward by MPs who are not ministers, as well as local and private bills. In recent years, both marriage equality and the “mondayisation” of the Waitangi Day and the Anzac Day public holidays have been achieved by the House passing members’ bills.
Guests of Parliament
This week the Speaker will host delegations from Kuwait and the Parliament of India. These groups will be introduced to the House. There are two types of introduction to the House; the standard introduction of a delegation seated in the Speakers Gallery and an introduction for a distinguished guest sitting to the left of the Speaker's Chair. Introductions take place immediately after the Prayer at the opening of each sitting day.
