MP's return to Parliament, Government under fire

From Checkpoint, 5:13 pm on 30 January 2024

The Government came under fire from multiple fronts today over race relations, cuts to public spending, and foreign affairs as MPs returned to Parliament for the new year.

The first day back was was frenetic, jam-packed with meetings, caucus, Cabinet and then the whole of Parliament.

In amongst all that, James Shaw announced his resignation as Greens' co-leader, effective from March, but he will stay in the building for a little longer.

Deputy political editor Craig McCulloch reports.
