2. Dr DON BRASH to the Prime Minister: When she said, of the proposed Auckland waterfront stadium, “I just favour whatever can be built within the timeframe available to do the best credit we can for the country.”, did she mean that there should be no limits to the expense incurred on behalf of the nation’s taxpayers; if not, what did she mean?

3. JEANETTE FITZSIMONS to the Minister of Foreign Affairs: Will he be raising the issue of climate change in his discussions with other foreign and trade ministers at the APEC summit this week; if not, why not?

4. Hon Dr NICK SMITH to the Minister of Finance: Why did he call the Electricity Commissioner into his office on 23 May 2006, endorse Transpower’s new proposal to put power lines through the Waikato, and say that he would deny that the meeting ever took place if he were asked?

5. SUE MORONEY to the Minister of Health: What reports has he received on primary health care?

6. Dr the Hon LOCKWOOD SMITH to the Minister of Immigration: Does he stand by his statement to the House on Tuesday, 12 September 2006 that he has reviewed the immigration matters covered in the Ingram report?

10.
