3. WILLIE JACKSON to the Minister for Industry and Regional Development: What regional development initiatives will be taken this month?

4. Hon BILL ENGLISH to the Minister for Economic Development: Given his concern "that we never get a long, sustained period of economic development because monetary policy is used to kill it off", what role does he intend playing in the upcoming review of monetary policy?
