Questions For Oral Answer - Wednesday, 9 February 2000

Question 1.

Rt Hon. Jenny Shipley to the Minister for Accident Insurance:

Q: Was the report the Prime Minister referred to yesterday in her answer to oral question No. 2 the Thomason-Burton report, which compared Canadian and United States public and private models of workers' compensation?

Question 2.

Damien O'Connor to the Minister of Fisheries:

Q: What independent reports has he received on the adequacy of research into the sustainability of New Zealand's fisheries?

Question 3.

Hon. Ken Shirley to the Minister for Accident Insurance:

Q: In view of the statement on Morning Report by the New Zealand Insurance Council that there has been a more than forty percent saving in workers' lives in the six months' experience of choice in accident insurance and the Associate Minister for Accident Insurance's statement to the effect that six months was too short a period to draw conclusions, why will the Government not delay the reversion to a State monopoly accident insurance system until we know whether choice in such insurance saves lives?

Question 4.

Peter Brown to the Minister of Corrections:

Q: Is he taking action to give effect to the overwhelming direction by 92% of voters to strengthen corrective measures for offenders; if so, what is that action?

Question 5.

Gerry Brownlee to the Minister for Accident Insurance:

Q: What reports has he had on actions to bring to justice those responsible for human rights violations in East Timor?

Question 7.

Tony Ryall to the Minister for Broadcasting:

Q: What did she mean when she told the Listener, "Well, I suppose that the Government will not get as great a dividend ... but it's not going to say that. [The Government] is still going to hope for commercial success. I can't say to them [at TVNZ] that I expect no dividend because, if I do that, I wipe out $60 million from our books. I'm not free to do that."?

Question 8.
