Today In Parliament for 7 April 2016 - evening edition

From In Parliament, 6:50 pm on 7 April 2016

Leader of the House, Gerry Brownlee, makes an unprecedented attack on the new chief ombudsman, Judge Peter Boshier, and is roundly condemned for it by opposition speakers led by Labour's Trevor Mallard. New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters, is thrown out of the chamber for the second day in a row while unsuccessfully trying to wring an admission from the government that New Zealand is indeed a tax haven. But Mister Peters found support from an unexpected quarter in the committee rooms where former National Party and ACT leader, Don Brash, was making a submission on the government's Resource Legislation Amendment Bill.
