The Day In Parliament for 19 August 2015 - morning edition

From In Parliament, 5:47 am on 19 August 2015

Finance Minister Bill English finally puts his seventh Budget to bed by leading off the third reading debate on the Appropriation 2015/16 Estimates Bill. Prime Minister John Key and Opposition leader Andrew Little duel over whose statistics are the dodgier while the Finance Minister and his Labour shadow, Grant Robertson, engage in another round of Plan A v Plan B v Plan C as they continue to fail to agree on the true state of the economy.
