They should know the numbers by now - Bill English

31/10/2017

The Government is staying tight lipped on the cost of their policy plans, saying only they are within budget.

Labour's Finance Minister has indicated they may release a mini budget before the end of the year.

National Party Leader Bill English said to The AM Show it would be good to put the number out sooner than that.

They're frittering away the hard work that's been done

“They should know the numbers by now. I mean they’ve had a few weeks on negotiations with the other parties and I think people would be reassured if they could put the number out now because it’s another six weeks or so before the half year update.”

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern was with The AM Show on Monday talking about the numbers.
