From In Parliament, 6:30 pm on 8 December 2016

MPs take a break from speculating about John Key's successor as National Party leader and Prime Minister to pass the Hurunui/Kaikoura Earthquakes Recovery Bill through all its remaining stages. The bill was back in the debating chamber after spending almost a week with the Local Government and Environment Committee whose chairman, Scott Simpson, related how government MPs on the committee heard of Mister Key's resignation announcement. National's Kaikoura MP, Stuart Smith, reports on aspects of his electorate's recovery from the 7.8 magnitude quake.
