Questions For Oral Answer Tuesday, 24 August 1999

Question 1.

Rt Hon. Helen Clark to the Prime Minister:

Q: Does her statement questioning why we do not have "mums and dads who care enough about the health status of their kids to take them to the doctor or to the dentist" mean that her Government does not accept any responsibility for the lack of improvement in child health status in South Auckland since 1994; if not, what responsibility does her Government accept?

Question 2.

Hon. Denis Marshall to the Minister for State Owned Enterprises:

Q: Are there any proposals to chip the West Coast beech forests owned by Timberlands?

Question 3.

Jim Anderton to the Prime Minister:

Q: Does she stand by her answer to written question No. 5619 due 15 July 1999?

Question 4.

Rt Hon. Winston Peters to the Minister of Revenue:

Q: When he said on National Radio yesterday, with respect to the Magnum transactions investigated by the inquiry into certain taxation matters, that "the National Government has long since closed those loopholes by changing the law", what loopholes was he referring to, and what law changes was he talking about?

Question 5.

Hon. Dr Michael Cullen to the Prime Minister:

Q: Does she stand by her answer to written question No. 5619 that staff in her office had not been involved in any way in relations between Timberlands West Coast and the Government; if not, why not?

Question 6.

Patricia Schnauer to the Minister for Accident Insurance:

Q: Has he done any costings or received any reports of the impact of returning the employers' scheme to a state monopoly?

Question 7.

Warren Kyd to the Minister for Enterprise and Commerce:

Q: What is the Government doing to ensure New Zealand prospers in the "knowledge age" of the 21st century?

Question 8.

Hon. Annette King to the Prime Minister:

Q: Is she still "personally angry" that a national database for immunisation has not been established, and is that why she is now "incredibly frustrated" by a report which shows a deterioration in children's health status in South Auckland?

Question 9.

Rod Donald to the Minister for State Owned Enterprises:

Q: As Secrets and Lies claims that his staff played a key role in Timberlands' public relations strategies, does he stand by his statement of 13 July 1999 that "Neither my staff, nor I have had input into any such strategies."?

Question 10.

George Hawkins to the Prime Minister:

Q: Did she consult any of her senior Cabinet Ministers before announcing on 16 August that there would "most certainly" be an inquiry into INCIS because she "personally want[ed] to know the role of IBM, the role of the Police, the role that we as a Government played in this"; if so, what was their advice?

Question 11.

Pansy Wong to the Treasurer:

Q: Is he confident about the outlook for growth of the economy for next year; if so, is this backed up by any external reports?

Question 12.

Trevor Mallard to the Prime Minister:

Q: Is she satisfied that her Minister of Maori Affairs has at all times met the standards of behaviour she expects from her Ministers; if so, why?

Reportedly, Christopher Luxon has the edge on Simon Bridges in National’s leadership contest although there is no firm evidence for that hunch.

You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet. Or even perhaps: Luxon hasn't got the numbers, and his people start talking to the media to talk up his support so that he gets a nicer consolation prize... More>>
