From Morning Report, 7:24 am on 14 December 2018

The government's new Budget focus has been praised by the Council of Trade Unions for "taking into account the wellbeing of working people and their families". But National Party leader Simon Bridges isn't impressed by the new wellbeing approach. The mid-year look at the government's books shows a forecast surplus of $1.7 billion in 2019. Treasury's also predicting the economy will grow at about three percent for the next few years.
