In 2007, the New Zealand Parliament passed a Private Members Bill to repeal Section 59 of the Crimes Act 1961. A petition in response to this law change forced a Citizens Initiated Referendum in July and August 2009. To help ensure that the opinions of children and young people will be heard, commencing in April 2009, New Zealand child helpline 0800WHATSUP (What’s Up) conducted a telephone survey of children and young people.
