Today In Parliament for Tuesday 6 December 2016
New Zealand First leader, Winston Peters, gets his request for a snap debate on John Key's resignation in ahead of Opposition leader, Andrew Little. The Speaker, David Carter, grants the request despite its technical flaws and opposition from the Government's leader of the House, Gerry Brownlee. The government's response to Winston Peters is led by the deputy prime minister, Bill English. Dispute over the nature of Mister Key's legacy includes questions as to whether he will even have a legacy. But Gerry Brownlee remains staunch in support of his Prime Minister.
