From In Parliament, 5:46 am on 12 May 2016

One more Question Time at 2pm before Parliament adjourns for a week, back on Tuesday 24 May for a four-week stint including the Budget. John Key becomes the first prime minister to be thrown out of the debating chamber since Margaret Wilson ordered Helen Clark to leave in June 2005. His departure leaves a question from New Zealand First unanswered and the leader of the House, Gerry Brownlee, declines to put up another minister. The Speaker, David Carter, reminds him of the purpose of Question Time and says his actions will be judged by the public.Demands for apologies from all sides over things said about the Panama Papers and the number of national of foreign home buyers. Reserve Bank Governor, Graeme Wheeler, crosses Bowen Street to brief the Finance and Expenditure Committee on his latest financial stability report.
