Today In Parliament for 10 August 2016 - evening edition

From In Parliament, 6:50 pm on 10 August 2016

Hugs, house prices and healthy homes - all come up in various ways in the House. Hugs for grandchildren who stay in New Zealand were a benefit claimed by Prime Minister, John Key, arising from lower numbers leaving on OE. Labour's immigration spokesman, Iain Lees-Galloway, however, cites increased immigration as a factor driving up house prices. Labour leader Andrew Little uses a question to members to promote his Healthy Homes Guarantee No 2 bill in the chamber while the Government Administration Committee hears submissions from the public on it earlier in the day.
