The laws of New Zealand are passed by Parliament’s House of Representatives. Parliament alone can make and change laws, which are published as the Statutes of New Zealand. In the past, keeping the statutes up to date was a laborious task for people like this young woman, who is using scissors and paste to insert amendments into particular statutes. The statutes are now available online.
