John Boscawen is holding a series of Public Meetings in various locations around New Zealand promoting his Bill to amend s59 of the Crimes Act to legalise the use of some types of reasonable force for the purposes of parental correction. Whilst the government would like everyone to think that this debate is over, Boscawen’s Bill is still alive; he has shrewdly removed it from impending vote and will re-admit it much closer to the next election. His next meeting is in Hamilton:
When: Thursday 8 October, 7.30 pm
Where: Hamilton Central Baptist Church, 33 Charlemont Street, Hamilton
Speaking with him will be Bob McCoskrie, Larry Baldock and local MP David Bennett. The other local MP, Tim Macindoe, has also been invited. Sue Bradford declined the invitation to attend.
