  2. JAMES SHAW to the Minister of Conservation: Would she like to see more coal mining on conservation land?

  3. ANDREW LITTLE to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by his response when asked did he think he was failing New Zealanders in mental health, “No no, I don’t think we are failing New Zealanders”; if so, is he saying that mental health services in New Zealand are in an acceptable state?

  6. GRANT ROBERTSON to the Minister of Finance: Why did he say recently, “I wouldn’t be characterising anything we do primarily as tax cuts”, and would he still agree with former Prime Minister Rt Hon John Key that a meaningful tax cut package would require “$3 billion, I reckon”?

  12.
