ACT MP John Boscawen is holding a public meeting in Mt Roskill on Monday to put pressure on MPs to back his bill (based on the Borrows amendments) amending the anti-smacking law. This is the first in what will be a series of public meetings.
John has pointed out than in 56 of the 70 seats (including Mt Roskill), more people voted No in the referenendum than voted for the electorate MP.
The Mt Roskill meeting will be addressed by Emeritus Professor of Law Jim Evans. It starts at 7.30 pm, Mon 7 September at Hay Park School, 670 Richardson Road, Mt Roskill.Tags: John Boscawen, Section 59, smacking
