The debate began after time-wasting tactics from the opposition and a snap debate on Fonterra's contamination crisis.

Wednesday is for member's bills and the GCSB debate won't be resumed until Thursday - which means its final third reading stage can't take place until August 20 after a week's recess.

It had been doing that for decades until it was discovered last year that a clause in its legislation which forbids it to spy on citizens or residents.

"It gives the GCSB much greater powers, case for samsung galaxy the definition of `communications infrastructure' is so broad it covers everything," said Labour's deputy leader Grant Robertson.

"New Zealanders don't want this bill, they want their privacy protected."

Government MPs accused Labour of playing politics at the expense of national security.

Labour, the Greens and NZ First have tabled dozens of amendments which will delay the bill again when it comes up on Thursday.

"We'd like to filibuster this all the way to the next election," NZ First leader Winston Peters said.

"The public is on our side nu skin hk, this is an invasion of their civil liberties."
