Pursuant to section 7 of the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993, I give notice that I have received from
a proposal to promote an indicative referendum petition.
The wording of the question proposed to be put to voters
in an indicative referendum is
“Should a smack within the context of positive parental correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?”
Comment is invited on this wording.
Anyone wishing to comment must send three written
The Clerk of the House of Representatives
