National’s Selwyn MP, Amy Adams, is the new chairwoman of the finance and expenditure select committee. She replaces Craig Foss, who is taking over the portfolios of outgoing minister outside Cabinet John Carter. Also on the committee is Stuart Nash. Despite their row over the amount of tax farmers pay, the Labour list MP says Ms Adams is a hard worker and will do a great job as chairwoman. He says the row was exaggerated. ”It was just a Labour member ribbing a National member who was ribbing a Labour member.”
Like Stuart, I also think Amy will do a great job as Chair – as she did with the Electoral Legislation Committee.
It’s dangerous for me to make predictions about MPs futures, but I am very confident in predicting that Amy will become a Minister if National gets re-elected.Tags: Amy Adams
