Three waters entrenchment clause kicked back to business committee

From Morning Report, 8:28 am on 29 November 2022

The controversial entrenchment clause in the Three Waters legislation has been kicked back to Parliament's business committee for another look which could include discussion about repealing it.

Labour supported a Green Party amendment, put up during urgency last week, that would require 60 percent support for any attempt to privatise water - rather than the usual 50 percent majority. 

Now they appear to be having second thoughts.
