    Odd choice of wording given this 'idea' was submitted to the House already, over 7 months ago, by yourself:

    A 7 month wait for what is in effect a second reading of that bill, is hardly 'soon' as promised either, or maybe it is going by the Government's activity standards this term. Clearly something was needed to make the Government look busy all of a sudden.

    However with that being said, I support the aim of this bill.
    Great to have your support. No offence intended but I've been around this House far too long to really care about previously-discussed ideas being submitted again for consideration during subsequent Parliaments.

    7 months ago was in the previous parliament, and this new version was put in the pipeline a) having been suggested as a general idea by me (not remembering that we'd had a bill on it so recently) and b) long before the VoNC was called.

    We hardly need to seem busy after passing 3 laws in just over a week. I think our DL also mentioned in the third post that this is a resubmission (with some changes) but I'm glad you support this bill. Are there any improvements you would like to see before the vote?
