The most important members’ bill drawn this year

The bill is here. Key aspects:

  • Universities must have an up to date code of practice on free speech
  • No use of premises can be denied to people purely on the grounds of their beliefs or views
  • Minimum requirements for the free speech codes of practice can be set by order-in-council
  • A university can’t avoid freedom of speech requirements by claiming allowing someone to speak will cause potential mental harm to some staff or students
  • TEC can not fund an institution that fails to comply with its freedom of speech obligations
