Labour’s paid parental bill back on table

first_imgRadio NZ News 24 July 2015The MP who has a paid parental leave bill back on the table for a second time, believes she now has the numbers to get it passed into law.Labour’s Sue Moroney has had her member’s bill – extending paid parental leave from 14 weeks to six months for all parents – drawn from the ballot once again.The Government had threatened to use its financial veto, but in February the bill was narrowly defeated in the House before that happened.Some MPs have been waiting decades for their own bill to be drawn in what could be described as a parliamentarian’s version of the lottery.Ms Moroney said the “ballot goddess” was definitely looking down on the children of New Zealand.“It’s great to have this pulled out again because we have the numbers back again in Parliament to see it through this time,” she said.http://www.radionz.co.nz/news/political/279557/labour’s-paid-parental-bill-back-on-tablelast_img read more

It is the first time the club has been English champions in 30 years and they also claimed their sixth European Cup win. Klopp signed a new deal in December but said he wants to return to Germany in four years’ time. When asked how long he plans to remain in England, he told SWR Sport: “Four years in Liverpool [and then] do nothing for a year.”But in five years, the world can look very different.” During his first season at Anfield, Klopp lost in the League Cup and Europa League finals before losing to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in 2018.Advertisement However, the club has bounced back from those setbacks to become the reigning English and European champions. Klopp also led Liverpool to the UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup this season. Klopp has never spent more than seven years at a single club with his spells at German clubs Mainz and Borussia Dortmund.
