Prime Minister John Key defends his government's anti-smoking policies against further attacks from New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters. Mister Key is also required to defend housing policies and confirms under questioning from Opposition leader, Andrew Little, that the 40 new houses that he claimed were being built every day were actually planning consents. Labour's spokeswoman on Arts, Culture and Heritage, Jacinda Ardern, uses her Budget Debate speech to claim that she would do a better job than the minister, Maggie Barry.
