Also discussed was the PM's opposition to the death penalty handed out to Saddam Hussein and former George Bush I's advisor James Baker's insights into the future of Iraq. See... Scoop Audio.

    Health: 10 Days Of Strikes, Call For Restrictions On Unions

    Further strikes beginning today by radiographers are leading to calls for limits to be placed on the rights of health unions to strike, says National’s Health spokesman, Tony Ryall. He is commenting as radiographers at seven DHBs begin another round of industrial action. A Canterbury DHB board member has called for public health workers around the country to be deemed providers of essential services and therefore not be allowed to take industrial action. See...

    The Financial Statements of the Government of New Zealand for the three months ended 30 September 2006 were released by the Treasury today...
