Oral questions

are proportional to the number of non-executive MPs a party has. These numbers are:

  • National 56
  • Labour 24
  • NZ First 4
  • Greens 4
  • ACT 1

In a three week session there are 108 questions. So the average questions per sessions of nine days will be:

  • National 68 which is seven or eight a day
  • Labour 29 which is three most days and sometimes four
  • NZ First 5 so one every second day approx
  • Greens 5 so one every second day approx
  • ACT 1 so one every three weeks

So the average day will see eight questions from National, three from Labour and one from NZ First or Greens.
