Controversial new legislation allowing the Government Communications Security Bureau to spy on New Zealanders has passed its final vote in Parliament tonight.
The GCSB amendment Bill passed its third and final reading by 61 votes to 59 following another heated debate between MPs.
National, United Future and ACT backed the legislation, but all other parties voted against it. Maori Party MPs were only able to cast two of their three votes in opposition to the Bill.
