WELLINGTON, March 9 - NZ First MP Darroch Ball's member's bill was drawn from the ballot on Thursday.

It proposes a partnership between the Ministry of Social Development and the Defence Force, setting up a "new pathway" into paid work for 15 to 17-year-olds.

"It aims to help 90,000 school drop outs who are languishing on the unemployment benefit," Ball said after his bill had been drawn.

"They will be in the Army to work, train and learn trade skills so they are work ready by the time they turn 18."

Ball says the Army has an existing youth development unit, and under his bill it would be expanded and fully resourced.

The bill will come up for its first reading but to get any further it will need government support, which isn't likely.

Two other bills drawn from the ballot deal with teacher ethics and arbitration law.

Labour MP Ruth Dyson's Education (Teachers' Code of Ethics) Amendment Bill would put a new, certified code of ethics into the Education Act.

It would create "an aspirational set of principles" including a commitment to learners, society and the profession.

National MP Paul Foster-Bell's Arbitration Amendment Bill proposes changing the Arbitration Act in line with Law Commission recommendations on the way trust deeds are dealt with.
