Since the industrial revolution people have had to locate themselves in large centres where they could work with others, but now new technologies are rendering distance unimportant. Changing technology will affect almost every aspect of our lives: E Grimshaw became the first Postmaster of New Zealand.
The new Customs and Excise Bill means Customs will no longer be able to demand that people entering the country hand over the passwords to their devices without reasonable cause.
Although, is that a change? There seems to be some confusion about what we believed the law was and what it actually was, as opposed to this law. So what was the law, and what does this bill mean?
So they already have been doing that. This law brings in a new authority for them to penalise people for not handing over the passwords but has been cut down from the original Customs demand, which they wanted carte blanche. So is it a good tweak, a good compromise, between privacy invasion and the need for security?
So who decides what reasonable cause is? They can only do it for relevant offences, which means to do with importing forbidden goods.
So, in effect then, they have got carte blanche.
I think that bringing up terrorism is a mistake. This law is specifically designed not to allow it to be used for tracking down people accused of terrorist offences. This law is only for relevant offences, which is importing forbidden goods. So nothing to do with terrorism.
Nothing to do with pornography. It could be to do with pornography because that can be a forbidden good. Customs seems very keen on becoming part of the security apparatus. We see this as them wanting more powers to collect more information for the police because there are this controls at the border.
And the police have to go to do this, they would have to go and get a warrant. That may be true for you, but other people have other issues as well.
For example, that information which they may be taking can include personal information in some. Because, of course, the way we put our lives digitally online, we now have everything on our laptops, everything on our phones, all our personal medical records, etc.
And we have all the communications with other people as well. You may not be involved with political activism, but I am, for example. Does that mean we should be taking this information from laptops and making it available? We do have information to keep private from our government.In National Standards for reading, writing and mathematics are being implemented in all National Standards.

Progress is being made on the massive automation project being undertaken at the Ports of Auckland, as the port readies itself to become the first in New Zealand to use automated straddle carriers to load and unload trucks and to operate the container yard.
The National Standards address reading and writing equally. However, the following section has a particular focus on reading in years 1–3 because the reading standards for these years are based on the levels of the Ready to Read series.
