VSM bill fate delayed

Select Committee can’t read fast enough

Students’ Associations face a longer wait to find out their fate after the Select Committee report on Roger Douglas’s Voluntary Student Membership (VSM) Bill was delayed.

The report will be presented at the end of September, not the end of this month as it had originally planned.

The committee received a large number of submissions on the Education (Freedom of Association) Amendment Bill

An analysis of half of the submissions indicates that the numbers are at least three to one against the bill.

Those who asked to speak to their submissions are five to one against the bill.

There have also been 4000 other submissions made against the bill.
