SCP HOUSE: Jim Anderton To Lead Off

When Parliament resumes tomorrow it will be time for Jim Anderton to step up to the podium and launch the detail of his Regional Development programme.

Legislation establishing his Economic Development Ministry is the first item on the government's agenda for the week, a spokeswoman for the Leader of the House said.
