LIVE updates: MPs continue debate on level 2 law

Urgent debate resumes in Parliament this morning on COVID-19 legislation granting authorities sweeping powers under level 2.

The COVID-19 Public Health Response Bill passed its first and second readings last night, without support from National.

National has criticised the unchecked power it endows and says it shows a lack of trust in New Zealanders, such as the 10-person limit for funerals.

The government says the law is necessary to enforce alert level 2 once the state of emergency is lifted.
