Green MP Elizabeth Kerekere said the party would back the repeal of the Oranga Tamariki System Surveillance Bill if there is a change of government next year.

The bill passed this week creates a legally independent monitor of the child protection agency, gives responsibility for handling complaints to the ombudsman and leaves an expanded children’s and young people’s commission with the advocacy role.

Opposition parties and the Greens want oversight and advocacy to remain with the Children’s Commissioner, and the government to await the report of the Royal Commission into Abuse in State Care.
