Michael Cullen's 7th Budget Speech

- Finance Minister, Michael Cullen: "I move, that the Appropriation (2006/07 Estimates) Bill be now read a second time. Budget 2006 demonstrates the importance to the Government and the people of New Zealand of the commonsense, consistent, long term view that has been taken over the previous six Budgets. Over the period from 2000 to 2005 New Zealand experienced very strong economic growth, averaging nearly four per cent over the last five years. This has led to strong household income growth, rising real incomes, and very low levels of unemployment. Since December 1999 an additional 313,000 jobs have been created in the New Zealand economy."

    BUDGET 2006 – SCOOP COMMENTARY

    Scoop Sludge Report: NZ Finance Minister Dr Michael Cullen presents Budget 2006 to the media lock-up

    - With his lead budget headline stolen by a DPMC messenger – local loop unbundling, Finance Minister Michael Cullen faced only minimal questioning in the budget lock-up this afternoon as he delivered his 7th budget media lock-up presentation in the Beehive banquet hall. Mind you having delivered a very long explanation in his presentation, there was arguably not a great deal left to find out. In fact as you look closely a fairly large chunk of the announced new spending in Budget 2006 is in fact related to initiatives the government campaigned on which have already been actioned. SEE…C.D. Sludge's Budget 2006 Report [1] & Budget 2006 Images And Audio [2] ALSO: Scoop Audio.Scoop Audio: Selwyn Manning and Simon Pound discuss the 2006 Budget, [3] how targeted funding often offers indication of where the Government intends to take the country – watch out for the detail. Also discussed is how David Cunliffe is the man of the week.
