Bulletin 24/3/2017

Summary:

After yesterday’s quiet, National comes out with an announcement on trade policy today.  National also finally says something about housing – not addressing affordability, but maybe putting a roof over the homeless.  Labout/Greens announce their Budget Responsibility Rules – combining three words that usually don’t get people’s blood pumping, no matter how good an idea it is, but might appeal to business folks.  Labour and Greens talk about a range of issues, including putting a price on water extraction, housing, and oil exploration.  ACT and United Future’s offer to National regarding Resource Management Act reforms is rebuffed – National not going to throw the Maori Party under the bus for this.  .
