Looks like the numbers are there to over-ride the Government and exempt farm dogs from micro-chipping. Good.
Last term, Labour ruled by getting United Future to vote with it on right leaning legislation and the Greens on left leaning legislation.
This term National is playing the game in reverse. To get probation period for employment through to select committee they got NZ First, United Future, ACT and Maori on board. For micro-chipping it is Greens, Maori, ACT and United Future.
