The House’s Order Paper has a refreshed format. The changes are designed to enhance the function of the Order Paper, which is similar to an agenda—it lists the business before the House on a sitting day. One of the helpful new features is the insertion of hyperlinks from each bill title listed on the Order Paper to the text of the bill. This will provide easier and faster electronic access to the business before the House.
This is a useful initiative. It was silly that you couldn’t click on a bill’s name to view it.
One of the reasons why I started my daily Parliament posts was because there was no one page where you could see everything scheduled for Parliament that day, with links for more info.
But we’ll keep them up, as the posts on Kiwiblog include the oral questions for each day, plus a brief background on each bill due for debate.
