Introduced on June 16. The bill temporarily amends the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 to allow eligible licensees to extend trading hours for the purposes of televising games played as part of the men’s Rugby World Cup 2023, without applying for a special licence. First reading on June 6 and sent to the justice committee to be reported back by July 11. Opposed by the Greens and Kerekere. Reported back on July 7 with minor changes. The committee also said a permanent legislative fix should be found as part of wider alcohol reform work.

Passed through all remaining stages under urgency on July 18 passing its third reading vote with Greens, Te Paati Māori, Kerekere and Whaitiri opposed.
