2. Hon MURRAY McCULLY to the Minister for State Owned Enterprises: In light of the New Zealand Post board minute tabled yesterday which states that directors were merely "advised" of the decision to issue proceedings against the Hon Richard Prebble, does the Minister intend to take any steps to correct statements made by him to the House that the action had board approval; if not, why not?

5. NANDOR TANCZOS to the Minister of Police: Does he agree with Gary Gotlieb, lawyer for three girls wrongfully imprisoned for aggravated robbery, who is reported to have said that "Police had tunnel vision and often believed they had the offender and then found the facts to fit the crime."; if so, how does he intend to address this serious accusation?

6. GERRY BROWNLEE to the Minister of Immigration: Following the Hon Jim Anderton's reported comments that he would help Cloud 9 remain in New Zealand by removing the obstacles preventing the chief executive's daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren from joining him in New Zealand, what influence did Mr Anderton have on her decision to "fast track" their residency?

10. Hon TONY RYALL to the Minister of Police: In light of his comment "I wish the Police every success with the new [recruitment] campaign, and look forward to seeing the results of it in future Police College intakes.", why was the recruit intake for October 2001 deferred?
