At the conclusion of a public request for proposals and selection process, the Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives has appointed Oratia Media to publish the fourth edition of the authoritative guide to the conduct of our Parliament – Parliamentary Practice in New Zealand.
West Auckland-based Oratia Media will publish the book as a high-quality paperback and an ebook, with a provisional publication date of August 2016.
Parliamentary Practice in New Zealand provides a detailed description of New Zealand’s parliamentary practice. It is an authoritative text for use by members of Parliament, public servants, academics, parliamentary officers and other working professionals who have an interest in Parliament, such as the legal profession.
David Wilson, Clerk of the House of Representatives, commented: “We’re really excited to be working with Oratia to produce a new edition of a much-used text. Producing an ebook will be a first for our Parliament and will hopefully widen its readership even further.”
Peter Dowling, Managing Director of Oratia Media, welcomed the agreement to publish Parliamentary Practice in New Zealand. “We’ve brought together an experienced team in Auckland, Wellington and Oamaru to edit and design this significant work, and look forward to a close relationship with the Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives.”
Further information about the book will be released closer to the publication date.
Provisional Publication Date: August 2016
