Celebrate iconic moments in New Zealand's history with our coasters featuring iconic quotes from the Hansard records of debates in Parliament. Each badge features graphics from the 150 year anniversary of Hansard in New Zealand, and features a quote relating to a landmark bill in New Zealand.

"Woman, as well as man, should be entitled to the fulllest political liberty" - Alexander Hogg, MP for Masterton, speaking on the third reading of the Electoral Act 1893 (which granted women the right to vote).

"We are declaring ourselves to be independent to-day" - Thomas Bloodworth, Legislative Councillor, speaking on the third reading of the Statute of Westminster Adoption Act 1947.

"This bill is fantastic" - Maurice Williamson, MP for Pakuranga, speaking on the third reading of the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill 2013 (which granted all couples the right to marry, regardless of gender or sexual orientation).

"No one says that it will not be difficult"  - Peter Tapsell, MP for Eastern Māori, speaking on the second reading of the Treaty of Waitangi Amendment Act 1985 (which allowed the Waitangi Tribunal to consider Māori grievances dating back to 1840).

Coasters are ceramic with a cork backing.
