The Book:
Parliamentary Practice in New Zealand is the definitive work on practice and procedure in the New Zealand House of Representatives.

This fourth edition incorporates a decade of developments since the third edition in 2005, and reflects many significant changes in parliamentary law, practice and procedure, including:

  • the Parliamentary Privilege Act 2014
  • how the House and its committees conduct legislative and financial scrutiny
  • the use of extended sittings by the House
  • the increased role of the Business Committee to manage the transaction of parliamentary business
  • how the work of the House and its committees is communicated to the public.

This new edition features an attractive design and accessible structure, with extensive indexing and references.
