The Day In Parliament for 8 April 2016 - morning edition

From In Parliament, 5:45 am on 8 April 2016

House is adjourned until Tuesday 12 April. Dramatic end to week after Leader of the House, Gerry Brownlee, makes an unprecedented attack on the new chief ombudsman, Judge Peter Boshier. 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. Mister Peters finds 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, bluntly critical of the government's proposed RMA reforms.
