  1. TODD BARCLAY to the Minister of Finance: How is the Government’s management of the economy creating opportunities for New Zealanders?

  2. ANDREW LITTLE to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by his statement that “we are seeing a record number of houses being built”, given 2016 isn’t even in the top 5 years for number of dwelling consents issued?
  3. Dr PARMJEET PARMAR to the Minister of Transport: What recent progress has been made on construction of the Government’s Western Ring Route motorway in Auckland?
  4. Rt Hon WINSTON PETERS to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by all his statements; if so, how?

  11. RON MARK to the Prime Minister: Does he stand by all his statements; if so, how?
  12. DENISE ROCHE to the Minister for the Environment: Will he support a charge paid by customers on single-use plastic bags in order to reduce waste and provide revenue for waste-minimisation programmes and education; if not, why not?
