Police Minister Anne Tolley is back from Britain with fresh determination to get a sex offenders register under way.

Tolley was looking at how Britain manages its high-risk criminals and wants to implement a monitoring regime accessible  to government agencies - but not the public.

''I think it's the right thing to do,'' she told TV3's The Nation this week. Tolley hopes to take a proposal to Cabinet by the middle of next year.

Where do you stand on political coat-tail riding?

If it gets marginalised voices into Parliament, I'm for it.

I'm against it - if you don't get the votes, you shouldn't be there.

It's just part of the political game.
