National still working on fiscal plan
Willis says final fiscal plan will be ready 'within a couple of weeks'; National still committed to tax cuts and rejects criticism of foreign buyers' tax; Says won't plan population growth; Eyes PPPs
TL;DR: National Finance Spokesperson Nicola Willis has signalled a National Government would produce a lower debt track than Labour, but has yet to say what it is forecasting or how it would pay for infrastructure investment necessary for ongoing population growth of 2%.
Willis told reporters in a standup yesterday after a speech to a KangaNews conference for bond investors and traders in Auckland that a fiscal plan would be due within a couple of weeks.
Have a listen to my questions and Willis’ answers above from that news conference. The transcript is above too. I have opened this up for all, given Willis may be the Finance Minister within 31 days.
