Bill to ban foreign donations pushed through under urgency

From Checkpoint, 5:37 pm on 3 December 2019

The government is moving under urgency in the house to ban foreign political donations of more than $50.

The move was only announced on Tuesday, but the government will be looking to hold all three readings of the bill on Tuesday afternoon.

It means it will also skip the Select Committee stage, where the public can give their feedback.

RNZ political reporter Charlie Dreaver has the details.
