Within the next few hours the government will be voting on their Paid Parental Leave bill. Labour’s response is a Supplementary Order Paper. If the ammendment passes it will mean the government will have to commit to Labour’s policy of 26 weeks leave.
Which means he can get it across the line right now.
You can help remind him to do so by tweeting him at @peterdunnemp
Kiwi families will get a fair go, or they won’t. It’s all down to Dunne.
Update: Nope. He voted against it. He’s trying to claim it was a budget vote and he’s a Minister so couldn’t vote against the govt. But it’s not a confidence issue. Cowardly and dishonest.
