2. Rt Hon JENNY SHIPLEY to the Prime Minister: Does she regret her comments about the viability of statutory management for Air New Zealand and recommending that small shareholders “hang on to” their Air New Zealand shares, and the effect these comments may have on the New Zealand taxpayer; if not, why not?

Hon MAX BRADFORD to the Minister of Defence: In light of the Defence Force inquiry which concluded that Major General Maurice Dodson had acted in an “unwise and inappropriate” manner when he ordered the shredding of a document ahead of an independent investigation, does he accept Major General Dodson’s assertions that he has “done nothing wrong” and that the issue was “a storm in a teacup”; if so, why?

7. JOHN TAMIHERE to the Minister for Sport, Fitness and Leisure: What action is the Government taking to enhance resourcing for developing coaches?

10. IAN EWEN-STREET to the Minister for the Environment: Should those persons responsible for the toxic pesticide leak in Hawke’s Bay on Monday, which resulted in 21 people needing hospital treatment and 25 households being evacuated, be liable for all associated costs and compensation for those affected; if not, why not?

11. CHRIS CARTER to the Minister of Immigration: Has she received reports of any proposals to establish detention centres in New Zealand for the purpose of detaining all asylum seekers and illegal immigrants until their status is established; if so, what is her response?

12. Hon ROGER SOWRY to the Minister of Health: What action has she taken to resolve the dispute between the Otago District Health Board and the Ministry of Health over the handling of a $1.1 million funding shortfall for acute patient treatment?
