Two approaches to question time

From The House , 6:55 pm on 28 May 2020

A new leader of the opposition means a new approach to question time particularly when it comes to quizzing the Prime Minister. 

Todd Muller took over as leader of the Opposition from Simon Bridges last Friday. 

Question time is an hour of oral questions to Ministers which takes place shortly after the House sits at 2pm. 

The Leader of the Opposition usually has one of the first questions and often directs it to the Prime Minister.

Phil Smith takes a look at the different approaches.
