Notice of Proposal to Promote an Indicative Referendum Petition

Under section 7 of the Citizens Initiated Referenda Act 1993, I give notice that I have received from Tricia Cheel, on behalf of Friends of Sherwood, a proposal to promote an indicative referendum petition.

The wording of the question proposed to be put to voters in an indicative referendum is:

“Do you agree that ALL cruel and inhumane poisons be prohibited – including 1080 (sodium monofluoroacetate), brodifacoum, pindone, PAPP and cholecalciferol – because they inflict such intense and prolonged suffering that their use can never be justified?”

Comment is invited on this wording. Anyone wishing to comment must send three written copies to:

The Clerk of the House of Representatives, Parliament House, Parliament Buildings, Wellington

by 5pm on Friday 11 January 2019.

Dated at Wellington this 14th day of November 2018.

SUZE JONES, Acting Clerk of the House of Representatives.
