Pursuant to section 7 of the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993, I give notice that I have received from Ian Wishart a proposal to promote an indicative referendum petition.
The wording of the question proposed to be put to voters in an indicative referendum is
"That New Zealand should adopt a written constitution which protects fundamental human and civil rights and which transfers legal sovereignty from the Crown to the people of New Zealand."
Comment is invited on this wording.
Anyone wishing to comment must send 3 written copies to The Clerk of the House Representatives, Parliament House, Parliament Buildings, Wellington, by 5.00 p.m. on Friday,
7 September 2001.
Dated at Wellington this 30th day of July 2001.
D. G. MCGEE, Clerk of the House of Representatives.
