English defends Budget on The Nation
Sat, 26 May 2012 1:30p.m.
Finance Minister Bill English told The Nation this morning this year’s Budget was a “moderate” one, without “any dramatic push anywhere in particular”.
He said New Zealand was in “better shape than most” and increasingly competitive with Australia.
The minister was joined by an expert panel, with New Zealand Herald economics editor Brian Fallow, Pattrick Smellie from BusinessDesk, and political commentator Colin James.
